Title: REsolved Spectroscopy Of a Local VolumE: The RESOLVE Survey in Stripe 82

Abstract: We request 14 nights of gray/dark time with the Goodman Spectrograph on SOAR and 88 hours of gray/dark time with the GMOS IFU on Gemini over two semesters to complete Phase~1 of the RESOLVE survey, providing a volume-limited gas, stellar, and dynamical mass census in the exceptionally complete Stripe 82 legacy equatorial strip. RESOLVE spans diverse large-scale cosmic structures and probes mass scales down to $\sim$^9$\msun\ in the gas-rich dwarf galaxy regime. With the proposed census, RESOLVE will (1) provide the first direct, complete, and environment-dependent measurement of the velocity function, potentially uncovering crucial clues to puzzling discrepancies in the dwarf galaxy inventory, and (2) put a unique constraint on the location of the ``missing baryons,'' via a comprehensive census of multiple mass components in relation to star formation and dynamical mass in a cosmological volume.
