49th DPS meeting, Provo, UT - Open to all DPS attendees
Organizers: Meg Schwamb (Gemini) & David Trilling (NAU)
Over its 10 year lifespan, the Large Synoptic Sky Survey Telescope (LSST) will catalog over 5 million Main Belt asteroids, almost 300,000 Jupiter Trojans, over 100,000 NEOs, and over 40,000 KBOs. Many of these objects will receive hundreds of observations in multiple bandpasses. The LSST Solar System Science Collaboration (SSSC) is preparing methods and tools to analyze this data, as well as understand optimum survey strategies for discovering moving objects throughout the Solar System.
This workshop serves as the annual meeting of the LSST SSSC, and is open to everyone. We will provide a brief status of LSST with respect to Solar System science and provide updates on current and future activities within the SSSC. The focus will not be on general LSST background but on details relevant to Solar System science topics. There will be time set aside for open discussion for both members of the SSSC and the broader planetary community.
