Science Requirements Document
This is a document developed by the JWST Science Working Group under the leadership of the Senior Project Scientist. It describes four science areas and the JWST capabilities needed to address them.
The SODRM is designed to represent the range and depth of science programs that JWST will carry out in its first year of science operations. Its main purpose is to provide a realistic test
bed for the design and implementation of the JWST ground system at STScI, and for simulations of the operating schedule for the observatory and its instruments.
Documents containing broad descriptions of JWST and its instruments, as well as their capabilities.
Documents covering issues related to JWST observing, data acquisition and processing, and other general topics.
Oral presentations given by JWST staff to a variety of audiences. Includes public presentations given by non-STScI staff about JWST.
Science White Papers
In the course of working on the development of JWST, the Science Working Group and other scientists working on Webb have written a variety of white papers describing science programs that might be carried out with JWST and how.
Papers found on ADS referencing JWST
These papers can be found through a simple search of ADS and links are available for each year since 1989. The current listing goes through 2009 with a total number of 1185.
Following decisions made by both ESA and ESO, the ST-ECF closed and ceased operations on 31st December 2010.
Information resulting from the group's JWST related science activities has been transferred to STScI and is available here.
