Survey Overview

Over the first five years of 4MOST operations, observing time on 4MOST will be granted to:

  • The community (public surveys will be awarded time through proposals)
  • The consortium (4MOST GTO time)
  • Chilean time

The surveys listed on these pages are the GTO surveys that will be carried out by the 4MOST consortium. However, ample time will be available to public surveys accessible through ESO proposals.

The consortium surveys are split into Galactic Surveys and Extragalactic Surveys, while Survey Simulations are predicting the progress of these surveys.
