The original SHINING survey in guaranteed time (GTO) includes

  • ~10 Starburst galaxies from the IRAS Revised Bright Galaxy Sample (RBGS, Sanders et al. 2003)
  • ~10 Seyfert 1 galaxies taken mostly from the CfA (Huchra & Burg 1992)
  • ~10 Seyfert 2 galaxies taken from the Bassani et al. 1999 sample
  • ~5 „elusive“ galaxies (heavily obscured AGN and ULIRGs)
  • ~30 low metallicity Galaxies and regions in the LMC and SMC
  • ~25 local ULIRGs; The local (z<0.5) ULIRG sample consists of all ULIRGs in the RBGS, augmented by sources from the PSCz catalog (Saunders et al., 2000) matching the high luminosity of ULIRGs at z»1.
  • 5 ULIRGs at z~1
  • ~60 interacting galaxies from Arp, KPG, VV, CGCG, UGC catalogues (photometry only)

The guaranteed time survey was augmented by various OT1 and OT2 open time projects.
