The nature of faint submillimetre-selected galaxies.

Smail, I. and Ivison, R. J. and Blain, A. W. and Kneib, J.-P. (2002) 'The nature of faint submillimetre-selected galaxies.', Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society., 331 (2). pp. 495-520.


We present the source catalogue for the SCUBA Lens Survey. We summarize the results of extensive multiwavelength observations of the 15 submillimetre-selected galaxies in the catalogue, from X-rays to radio. We discuss the main observational characteristics of faint submillimetre galaxies as a population, and consider their interpretation within the framework of our understanding of galaxy formation and evolution.
