DEEP component discussion

Postby gtrichards » Mon Mar 10, 2014 11:11 am

DEEP VLASS component range of possibilities:

Min Area = 10 sq. deg (Jarvis whitepaper)
Max Area = 30 sq. deg (White et al. VLA proposal)

Max Depth = 1.5uJy (Jarvis whitepaper)
Min Depth = 4uJy (White et al. VLA proposal)

Multi-epoch: Yes. The required exposure times greatly exceed the
single-epoch visibility of the fields, so we will clearly have many
epochs for variability. Exactly how many epochs and what exposure
time are optimal is up for discussion.

Bandpass = L (default, but S or L+S up for discussion)

Array: B (default, but A or A+B or Custom up for discussion)

Polarization: Yes (default, just need to figure out how that affects
the overhead and thus the depth/area)

Possible Fields (up for discussion):

Jarvis whitepaper (10 sq. deg):

White proposal and Wang whitepaper (30 sq. deg):

For other/additional suggestions see Hales whitepaper

Please discuss the merits and optimal configuration for a DEEP
tier. Either by responding to this message or posting to the google
spreadsheet at ... sp=sharing
Matt Jarvis will moderate this component of the discussion.
