Abstract

In this paper, we present data from the Blind Ultra-Deep H I Environmental Survey (BUDHIES), which is a blind 21-cm H I spectral line imaging survey undertaken with the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope. Two volumes were surveyed, each with a single pointing and covering a redshift range of 0.164 < z < 0.224. Within these two volumes, this survey targeted the clusters Abell 963 and Abell 2192, which are dynamically different and offer unique environments to study the process of galaxy evolution within clusters. With an integration time of 117 × 12 h on Abell 963 and 72 × 12 h on Abell 2192, a total of 166 galaxies were detected and imaged in H I. While the clusters themselves occupy only 4 per cent of the 73 400 Mpc3 surveyed by BUDHIES, most of the volume consists of large-scale structures in which the clusters are embedded, including foreground and background overdensities and voids. We present the data processing and source detection techniques and counterpart identification based on a wide-field optical imaging survey using the Isaac Newton Telescope and deep ultraviolet (UV) Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) imaging. Finally, we present H I and optical catalogues of the detected sources as well as atlases of their global H I properties, which include integrated column density maps, position-velocity diagrams, global H I profiles, and optical and UV images of the H I sources.
