Abstract We present GALEX near-ultraviolet (NUV) and far-ultraviolet (FUV) photometry, Sloan Digital Sky Survey r and u-band photometry, as well as archival 2MASS observations for the Coma-Abell 1367 Supercluster. Our aim is to study the stellar populations and star formation history of HI-detected galaxies from the ALFALFA survey. We correct for the effects of interstellar reddening and inclination on the observed uv colors and derive an measure of the rate of recent and current star formation, and how they are linked to the HI content, of galaxies throughout the supercluster.
