A Keck/MOSFIRE spectroscopic survey of star-forming galaxies in rich environments during cosmic-noon.

With the growing number of confirmed galaxy clusters at z~2, it is now possible to track how baryons cycle between stars, winds, and the ISM when cluster galaxies are still forming a large fraction of their stars. ZFIRE combines imaging from the Hubble Space Telescope with deep spectroscopy from Keck Observatory to study hundreds of cluster galaxies at z~2. By combining with legacy multi-wavelength observations spanning UV to the far-IR, ZFIRE extends established scaling relations to cluster environments at z~2 and is an ideal counterpoint to field surveys such as MOSDEF and 3D-HST.
