GPI Target Duplication Policy

You are here

In general, Gemini avoids making observations that duplicate the science goals and scientific utility of other observations, given the limited resource of observing time on sky. The Gemini Science Archive (GSA) eventually provides open access to all data. Policies against target duplication using the Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) follow from these principles and apply to all observations using GPI.

During the period when the GPI Campaign was active, until semester 2019A, the campaign targets enjoyed a certain level of protection against duplication. The GPI Campaign provided a list of targets and observing mode that were protected against duplication following a set of rules that were reviewed and endorsed by the Science and Technology Advisory Committee (STAC).
