Seminar on the participation of the IAC in SDSS-IV

In the seminar "SDSS at the IAC. Ongoing SDSS-III science and SDSS-IV planning: APOGEE-2, eBOSS, MaNGA, TDSS and SPIDERS" Dr. C. Allende, Dr. I. Perez-Fournon & Dr. J. Falcon-Barroso will provide an overview of SDSS activities at the IAC, and current plans for participating in SDSS-IV (2014-2020).

Those plans include the participation in APOGEE-2, a project that will study the details of the assembly and growth of the Galaxy using observations from the 2.5m Sloan Foundation Telescope at Apache Point Obs. (APO) in New Mexico, U.S.A. (APOGEE -2 North) and the 2.5m Du Pont Telescope at Las Campanas Obs. in Chile (APOGEE -2 South). The Severo Ochoa program is partially supporting the participation of the IAC in APOGEE-2. The IAC is involved in the construction of the new spectrograph for APOGEE -2 South, essentially a copy of the original APOGEE spectrograph, with the Severo Ochoa program support focused on polishing of the folding mirrors #1 and #2 of the spectrograph, as well as with engineering support from the Technology division to assess the effectiveness of seismic protection measures under consideration.
