Dark Energy Survey Releases Science-Ready Data Products

The Dark Energy Survey (DES) has released data products used in its Year-One (YI) science programs, including object catalogs, survey characterization maps, and cosmological likelihoods. A large-area survey of the Southern sky being carried out with the CTIO Blanco telescope, DES is investigating the accelerating expansion of the Universe using weak gravitational lensing, galaxy cluster counts, baryon acoustic oscillations, and Type Ia supernovae. DES Y1 catalogs will soon be available through the NOAO Data Lab.
