Solar System Community Webinar: JWST Exposure Time Calculator (J. Stansberry and B. Holler)

Community Lecture • June 15, 2017 12:00 PM EDT - June 15, 2017  02:00 PM EDT • Baltimore STScI Muller S322

The JWST exposure time calculator is a web-based tool for estimating the signal-to-noise ratio that can be obtained on a target using any of the JWST science instruments and their observing modes. Use of the ETC for solar system targets will be reviewed, including strategies for dealing with targets that move and include both reflected and emitted light components to their spectra. The webinar will...

JWST Community Lecture Series - Observing Solar System Targets with JWST (J. Stansberry)

Community Lecture • February 14, 2017 11:00 AM EST - February 14, 2017  12:00 PM EST • Baltimore STScI Muller CafeCon

Abstract: I will summarize how observers can plan JWST observations of moving targets (objects within the solar system). I'll address limitations on observing geometry, apparent rate of motion, and epoch, as well as brightness limits and sensitivity for the four science instruments in the context of solar system bodies. Initial modeling of the effects of scattered light, relevant for observations of...

Exploring the Infrared Solar System with JWST

Science Meeting • August 31 - September 2, 2016 • London, England

This workshop was to encourage and inform Solar System scientists about the use of the James Webb Space Telescope for infrared observations of Solar System targets, and to inform them about the Director's Discretionary Time Early Release Science program. It was held at the Royal Astronomical Society in London, and organized by Gillian Wright, Pierre Ferruit, and Helen Walker.
