VLASS Transients & Variability Working Group (TVWG)

-- StevenMyers - 2014-03-24

This wiki space is for the VLASS TVWG to post materials, pose issues, and report results.

TVWG Issue List

Here is a list of issues and topics the VLASS TVWG is considering:

The following were posted by Ashley on the Forum:
  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.
