Murphy et al. 2010, ADS, On-line Data
20 GHz 2010 The AT20G Survey is a blind radio survey carried out at 20 GHz with the Australia Telescope Compact Array from 2004 to 2008, and covers the whole sky south of declination 0 degrees. The AT20G source catalogue includes 5890 sources above a 20-GHz flux-density limit of 40 mJy. All AT20G sources have total intensity and polarisation measured at 20 GHz, and most sources south of declination -15 degrees also have near-simultaneous flux-density measurements at 5 and 8 GHz. A total of 1559 sources were detected in polarised total intensity at one or more of the three frequencies.
