This is the second data release from the ESO Large Programme Dissecting GAs Stripping Phenomena in galaxies (GASP; 196.B-0578; Principal Investigator: B. Poggianti). This completes the release for this programme and provides deep MUSE 3D cubes observed in wide field mode and natural seeing plus ancillary products, comprising the observations taken from Periods 99 to 101. The scientific goal of the large programme is to study galaxies at z = 0.04-0.07 in different environments. For each target galaxy, the released science data products are the reduced and combined MUSE 3D data cubes that can be queried and downloaded via the Archive Science Portal here.

The 3D science data cubes come with additional associated products. These products are extracted 1D spectra plus associated maps of the emission-line fluxes for the H-alpha and H-beta emission, the Halpha 2D line-of-sight velocity field, the average star formation rate in four age bins, as well as luminosity-weighted stellar age and stellar mass density maps.
