Planning a Deep NIRCam Survey Marcia Rieke (University of Arizona) The design and rationale for the NIRCam GTO Deep Survey program will be examined in this talk with an emphasis on why a particular suite of filters and exposure times were chosen. MIRI imaging will be collected in parallel to the NIRCam exposures, and the acquisition of these data imposed additional constraints on the observing plan. The actual observations that the NIRCam GTO Team intends on executing will serve as an example of how to layout mosaics with parallel observations to maximize observing efficiency for surveys with JWST.
