The SCUBA2 Cosmology Survey
is the successor to SCUBA, using 'CCD-like'
technology with over 10,000 pixels in two arrays to
observe at both 450 and 850μm with a field of view of
∼7x7 arcminutes at both wavelengths - 16 times the
area of SCUBA, leading to a mapping speed of 100 times greater than
SCUBA at both wavelengths.
The two year plan is to
map 20 sq. degrees at 850μm to 0.7mJy 1σ in 8
fields, and to
map 0.6 sq. degrees at 450μm to 0.5mJy 1σ with
simultaneous ultradeep 850μm mapping to 0.15mJy
1σ over 6 fields.
The five year plan is to
map 50 sq. degrees at 850μm to 0.7mJy 1σ and to
map 1.5 sq. degrees at 450μm to 0.5mJy 1σ with
simultanous ultradeep 850μm mapping to 0.15mJy
The details of the fields and the science case is
available on the SCUBA2 cosomology survey webpage. The
SCUBA2 Cosmology Survey
is part of the
JCMT Legacy Survey Projects.
