# Expected Survey Performance for Science Forecasting

The most up-to-date expected survey performances (previously called "experiment definitions"), and all the historical ones used for iterating, for both large-area survey and small-area survey, can be found at Survey Performance Expectations.

Expected Survey Performances (a result of instrument performance and observations) below are the converged result at each epoch (or will be once someone fills them in).

**Lo-Res Ultra-Deep Field**

All numbers are defined for v1 of the pole deep survey described here, which has an effective sky fraction for noise of 2.88%. To obtain the white noise levels given below, one should take the numbers in the first table under "Small-area Survey Performance Expectation 05" (scaled from achieved BK performance and to a 3% patch), which are given for a 1-4-4-3 tube configuration and 7 yrs of observation, scale to 2-6-6-4 tubes (i.e. divide by factors of sqrt(2/1), sqrt(6/4) and sqrt(4/3)), then further scale down by sqrt(3)/sqrt(2.88)*sqrt(1.32). This last factor comes from dividing out the initial scaling to 3%, and applying an extra ratio of (noise) f_sky for BK and the survey of interest (the 2.88 and 1.32 numbers can be found in this posting by clicking "Pole Deep (v1)" and "04d")
