SERVS is the Spitzer Extragalactic Representative Volume Survey. Deeper and narrower than SWIRE (18 square degrees vs. 50), but wider and shallower than COSMOS. Mark Lacy is the PI. SERVS will take a complete census of the population of massive galaxies in the redshift range ~1-6 within a volume of ~0.8 cubic Gpc, large enough to overcome the effects of cosmic variance. SERVS is particularly well-suited to the study of environments.

Data processing is occurring at IPAC. Jean-Christophe Mauduit is performing the actual work. Together we are working on a project to understand the (clustering) environments around AGN and star-forming galaxies. The image below shows a comparison image from SERVS (left) and SWIRE (right) at 3.6 microns, in the ELAIS-N1 field.
