Title: The NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey

Abstract: The NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey is a very deep optical and IR ($B_WRIJHK$) imaging survey of 18ebox$^circ$ of the sky with the primary goal of studying the evolution of large-scale structure from $zsim1-4$. In addition, the survey will enable further investigation of the formation and evolution of the red-envelope galaxy population and the detection of luminous, very distant ($z>4$), star-forming galaxies and quasars. We are mapping an unprecedentedly large area to very faint flux limits ($B_WRIge26$~AB mag. and $J,H=21;K=21.5$~AB mag.~5- $sigma$ detection limits in a \'\'$ diameter aperture). This survey will be valuable in addressing many other problems, and we have designed its execution and the presentation of the data to the community in a manner that will maximize the scientific return. Our first release of calibrated data and object catalogues constructed from the already completed portions of this survey is scheduled for the June AAS meeting in Chicago. Additional releases will be made as significant subsets of the survey are reduced and calibrated. In this proposal we request the observing time necessary to complete the optical imaging portion of the survey by the summer of 2000, in time for the start of science operations of the Gemini North telescope. The IR imaging will require an additional year to complete.
