The JCMT Plane Survey

Parsons, Harriet (Joint Astronomy Centre)

The JPS (JCMT Plane Survey) is a survey of six field in the inner galactic plane taken at 450 and 850 microns using SCUBA-2, a 10,000 bolometer camera mounted on the JCMT in Hawaii. Each field covers approximately 4.5 degrees in longitude and 2 degrees in latitude. The six fields are located between l=10 and l=60. The target rms for the JPS survey is 10mJy/beam which will yield a mass detection limit of around 100 solar masses at the far side of the Galaxy. This work is presented on behalf of the JPS consortium.
