We present Johnson B surface photometry for the UCM Survey galaxies. One-dimensional bulge-disk decomposition is attempted, discussing on fitting functions and computational procedures. The results from this decomposition, jointly with concentration indices and an asymmetry coefficient, are employed to study the morphological properties of these galaxies. We also compare our results with the previous morphological classification established using Gunn r imaging data and with other samples of galaxies. No major statistical differences in morphology are found between red and blue data, although some characteristics such as size and luminosity concentration vary. We find a correlation between luminosity and size. Several parameters are used to segregate the objects according to their morphological type.

This paper is based on observations obtained at the German-Spanish Astronomical Centre, Calar Alto, Spain, operated by the Max-Planck Institute für Astronomie (MPIE), Heidelberg, jointly with the Spanish Commission for Astronomy. It is also partly based on observations made with the Jacobus Kapteyn Telescope operated on the island of La Palma by the Royal Greenwich Observatory in the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias and the 1.52 m telescope of the EOCA/OAN Observatory. This research has made use of the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) which is operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. We have also use of the LEDA database, http://www-obs.univ-lyon1.fr. This research was also supported by the Spanish Programa Sectorial de Promoción General del Conocimiento under grants PB96-0610 and PB96- 0645. P. G.

Pascual for their help during part of the observing runs and stimulating conversations. We thank M. N. Estévez for carefully reading the manuscript and making some useful remarks. We are also grateful to Dr. E. Emsellem for his helpful comments and suggestions.
