Each of the 3170 pointings will be observed for 8 hrs, which, at most declinations, is sufficient to produce ~5arcsec resolution images with a sensitivity of ~0.1mJy/beam and accomplish the main scientific aims of the survey which are to explore the formation and evolution of massive black holes, galaxies, clusters of galaxies and large-scale structure.... - arxiv (https://arxiv.org/abs/1611.02700) o-0-o pdf - Nov 10, 2016 (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1611.02700v1.pdf)
