GMT SAC White Paper

The GMT Scientific Advisory Committee has prepared a white paper that lays out their vision for scientific operations with the GMT. This document should serve as a launching point for discussions within the GMT partner community and the astronomical community at large. The paper considers a wide range of topics, including the balance of small and large programs, operating modes, public access to the GMT and access to its science data archive. A PDF can be downloaded here.

This document will help inform the GMT Project as we develop our Operations Concept Document, one of the key foundation documents for the project.

The GMT SAC is comprised of scientists from the partner institutions along with community representatives. The current list of SAC members can be found here.
