Oral Presentation

The WIRCam Infrared Deep Survey

Author(s): Chris Willott

Presenter: Chris Willott (CADC, NRC-HIA)

I will describe the WIRCam Infrared Deep Survey (WIRDS) which is a
Large Program carried out at CFHT from 2006 to 2008. WIRDS provides
broad-band near-infrared (JHK) data for the CFHTLS Deep Fields. The
data were processed by CFHT and Terapix and are publicly available
from the CADC. I will present some WIRDS science highlights including
type Ia supernova host galaxies, the discovery of z > 1 galaxy
clusters and galaxies up to redshift 6.
