The Multi-Wavelength, Multi-Epoch Heritage of Stripe 82
March 17-19, 2014
In recent years, many fields of astronomy have benefited greatly from the concentration of observing time in a few select fields on the sky, in which broad wavelength coverage, deep photometry, and spectroscopic surveys are combined to enable qualitatively new kinds of scientific investigation. One of the most successful of these is the SDSS equatoral stripe, or Stripe 82, which has benefited from many epochs of photometry and an extensive spectroscopic campaign from all three SDSS surveys over 200 square degrees, as well as numerous observations with telescopes in other wavebands. This workshop will explore the science enabled by the many surveys of this piece of the sky, the technical challenges involved in making the most of such high-dimensional data, and lessons learned that may be applicable to future deep, multi-band surveys. A particular focus will be placed on providing a working environment for initiating collaboration across different projects and sharing technical expertise.
