We present the optimal resolution and optimal depth U-filter mosaics using the seeing-sorted method of Ashcraft et al. on deep, ground-based U-bandimaging of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey South field as part of the near-UV imaging program UVCANDELS. We use the U-bandimages obtained with the VIsible Multi-Object Spectrograph on the European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope by Nonino et al. Our best resolution mosaic includes images with a seeing full-width half maximum (FWHM) ≤ 0.”8, and encompasses 50% of the data. Our best depth mosaic includes images with FWHM ≤ 1.”5, corresponding to 100% of the data. Prior to being combined, the source fluxes in each individual background-subtracted image are corrected to match a 3D-HST photometric catalog of the same field to correct variations in the U-band zero-points. These mosaics provide deep U-banddata complementary to the UVCANDELS HST WFC3 F275W and ACS F435W images. We assess the depth of both U-bandmosaics.
