Radio and mid-infrared identification of BLAST source counterparts in the Chandra Deep Field South

Abstract : We have identified radio and/or mid-infrared counterparts to 198 out of 351 sources detected at >= 5 sigma over ~ 9 sq. degrees centered on the Chandra Deep Field South (CDFS) by the Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (BLAST) at 250, 350, and 500 microns. We have matched 92 of these counterparts to optical sources with previously derived photometric redshifts and fitted SEDs to the BLAST fluxes and fluxes at 70 and 160 microns acquired with the Spitzer Space Telescope. In this way, we have constrained dust temperatures, total far-infrared/submillimeter luminosities and star formation rates for each source. Our findings show that the BLAST sources lie at significantly lower redshifts and have significantly lower rest-frame dust temperatures compared to submm sources detected in surveys conducted at 850 microns. We demonstrate that an apparent increase in dust temperature with redshift in our sample arises as a result of selection effects. This paper constitutes the public release of the multi-wavelength catalog of >= 5 sigma BLAST sources contained within the full ~ 9 sq. degree survey area.
