Cycle 24 Calibration

11/2016 - 10/2017 (12 months)

During Cycle 24 the WFC3 team will carry on an extended calibration program designed to measure and monitor the behavior of both the UVIS and IR channels of WFC3 and to provide the best calibration data for the approved scientific programs. The results of these calibration programs will be documented as they become available in Instrument Science Reports on the WFC3 ISR webpage.

Cycle 24 calibration plan was designed to:
