Preliminary Survey Definition and Questions

Postby bevinashley » Mon Mar 24, 2014 12:55 pm

A few questions for discussion:
(1) Are there other primary fields we should push to include in the Tier 2 (medium, multi-freq)? (e.g. likely LSST deep drilling fields)
(2) What cadences are needed for transients which are not from synchrotron emission? (the latter of which changes on timescales of ~months at S band)
(3) Does anybody's science require angular resolution better than 10''?
(4) What are thoughts on including some community followup of transients within the VLASS?
(5) We found a two-tiered survey to be satisfactory for most transient goals - what would be motivation for a 3 or 4-tiered survey?
(6) Should we forgo time-consuming X band observations for deeper S and C band observations in the Medium Tier survey.
