Characterization of the Canary Island Observatories
The IAC has long been aware of the importance of promoting initiatives for the characterization and protection of the Canarian Observatories (Roque de los Muchachos -ORM- on La Palma and Teide -OT- on Tenerife). For this reason, the Sky Quality Team was created and then a technical office for sky protection (OTPC) to ensure that the Law protectingCasianaMuñoz Tuñón
Thirty Meter Telescope - TMT
Una vez construido, el Telescopio de Treinta Metros (Thirty Meter Telescope, TMT) será el telescopio terrestre más avanzado y potente de la historia, así como el telescopio óptico infrarrojo más grande del hemisferio norte que existirá en ese momento. Se incluye entre los denominados de tipo Telescopio Extremadamente Grande por el diámetro de su
Sloan Digital SKY Survey III - SDSS
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey has created the most detailed three-dimensional maps of the Universe ever made, with deep multi-color images of one third of the sky, and spectra for more than three million astronomical objects. Learn and explore all phases and surveys—past, present, and future—of the SDSS.
Detailed Anatomy of GALaxies - DAGAL
DAGAL is an ambitious network formed of six research groups in Spain, Germany, Finland, France, and the Netherlands. The network will collaborate very closely with the Spitzer Survey of Stellar Structure in Galaxies (S4G). We will train 8 ESRs (PhD students) and 2 ERs (postdocs) using a combination of training through high-level astrophysical
ELT - European Extremely Large Telescope
FP6 viability study proposal for a European Extremely Large Telescope. Contains studies and developments in various astrophysics-related fields: wavefront control, optics, mechanics, control, dome and infrastructure, adaptive optics, operations, instrumentation, and site characterisation.MarcosReyes García-Talavera
