T-ReCS SV Plan

The table below summarises the pool of observations which have been defined for T-ReCS System Verification at Gemini South. The list encompasses the various T-ReCS observing modes with a range of observing conditions and is intended to overfill the SV time available for any given mode to provide flexibility when scheduling and in their execution (e.g. with regards to target accessibility or conditions required). System Verification will be carried out on a mode by mode basis. The first mode to be executed will be the imaging mode, followed by the low-resolution spectroscopic mode, and finally the high-resolution spectroscopic mode

Important note: As the observing modes are overfilled to allow flexibility in executing the SV observations, the presence of a proposed observation in the SV plan does not by any means guarantee that the observation will be executed, and should not deter proposals to observe the same objects as part of the regular semester.

The table links to more information about each program (click on the program number) including specific aspects of the instrument and telescope to be verified, a summary of the possible scientific returns from successful observations, a target list and the members of the assessment team. Each program will link to the SV data and its assessment when available.
