Abstract / Description:We present a study of galaxies in the STAGES survey of the Abell 901/902 supercluster at zËœ0.165, based on HST/ACS F606W, COMBO-17, Spitzer 24 mum, XMM-Newton X-ray, and gravitational lensing maps. We characterize galaxies with strong, externally-triggered morphological distortions and normal, relatively undisturbed galaxies, using visual classification and quantitative CAS parameters. We compare normal and distorted galaxies in terms of their frequency, distribution within the cluster, star formation properties, and relationship to dark matter or surface mass density, and intra-cluster medium density. We report here our preliminary results.
