Abstract

COROT is a high precision wide field photometry experiment from space, funded in the framework of the CNES “Petites Missions” program (the PI is A. Baglin). It will observe approximately 30000 objects with mV between 4.5 and 15.5 over long observational periods (up to 150 d), with a time sampling between 1 s and 16 min, a precision of the order of 10−4 per measurement. The scientific objectives are stellar seismology and the search for telluric planets. The instrument and the core program have already been presented in several places. We here focus on a description of the characteristics of the data to be obtained with COROT. The large amount of high quality data collected by COROT will constitute rich material for several research programs beyond the core program as already defined (http://www.astrsp-mrs.fr/www/corot.html). A call for proposal of additional programs will be made during Northern Spring 2000.
