Abstract

We present the ancillary data and basic physical measurements for the galaxies in the ALMA Large Program to Investigate C+ at Early Times (ALPINE) survey-the first large multiwavelength survey that aims at characterizing the gas and dust properties of 118 main-sequence galaxies at redshifts 4.4 z < 5.9 via the measurement of emission at (64% at >3.5 sigma) and the surrounding far-infrared continuum in conjunction with a wealth of optical and near-infrared data. We outline in detail the spectroscopic data and selection of the galaxies as well as the ground- and space-based imaging products. In addition, we provide several basic measurements including stellar masses, star formation rates (SFR), rest-frame ultra-violet (UV) luminosities, UV continuum slopes (beta), and absorption line redshifts, as well as H alpha emission derived from Spitzer colors. We find that the ALPINE sample is representative of the 4 z < 6 galaxy population selected by photometric methods and only slightly biased toward bluer colors (Delta beta similar to 0.2). Using [] as tracer of the systemic redshift (confirmed for one galaxy at z = 4.5 out of 118 for which we obtained optical [lambda 3727A emission), we confirm redshifted Ly alpha emission and blueshifted absorption lines similar to findings at lower redshifts. By stacking the rest-frame UV spectra in the [] rest frame, we find that the absorption lines in galaxies with high specific SFR are more blueshifted, which could be indicative of stronger winds and outflows.
