Asymmetry (A) vs. Smoothness (S) for KiDS-GAMA GZ galaxies binned by A and S. The average merger_neither_frac from GZ within each bin is shown from low (red) to high (blue). Regions with low merger_neither_frac are visually identified as merging galaxies. The orange line denotes the Conselice (2003) split between merging and non-merging galaxies. Panel b includes the visually confirmed mergers from Darg et al. (2010a,b) as purple stars.
