1 workshop_wide_field_1406061 Wide field HAR imaging surveys in the thermal infrared (3-5 µm) from Dome C Nicolas Epchtein CNRS/LUAN/UNSA

2 workshop_wide_field_1406062 Main goals Extend 2MASS/DENIS and VISTA/UKDISS –Deeper –Toward longer : K dark, L short, L’, M’(NQ) Complete Spitzer; ASTRO-F; WISE –Better angular resolution –Remove confusion limit (Spitzer/WISE) Imaging Surveys of selected large targets: Magellanic Clouds (global monitoring); Bulge /Disk sample (ISOGAL); Nearby Large Molecular Clouds & SFR (Cham, Carina,..); Deep Fields for extragalactic and cosmology/ nearby very low mass stars Provide astrometric/photometric catalogues to JWST

3 workshop_wide_field_1406063 Questions science case to extend large scale infrared sky surveys (VISTA-like) beyond 2.3 µm (ARENA 5.1)? Are the future space missions ASTRO-F; WISE; JWST opportunities? Does Dome C provide the appropriate response? If yes, what are the top level requirements ? What is achievable at Dome C within the next decade ? Long range: small ELT (20 m class) dream or reality ?

12 workshop_wide_field_14060612 No deep survey can be carried out from the ground beyond 2.3 µm because of: –Sky emission brightness K=12/13 at M. Kea –Sky emission instability –Instrumental thermal emission (250-300K) BUT from Polar sites
