    CNOC is a wide collaboration of observers and theorists interested in problems of observational cosmology. Our primary interest is to address observational problems that require diverse skills to acquire, reduce, and interpret large datasets. The members of the core group are: Ray Carlberg (PI), Howard Yee, Erica Ellingson, Chris Pritchet, David Hartwick, Jim Hesser, John Hutchings, Simon Morris, Dick Bond and Nick Kaiser who hold an NSERC grant to support this work. A great deal of the work is being done with other collaborators, postdoctoral fellows and students.

    The two main current projects, first to measure Omega using cluster dynamics, and second to measure the evolution of galaxy correlations and a field value of Omega in faint galaxies. The data acquisition for the CNOC1 Cluster Survey was completed in March, 1994. The CNOC2 Field Survey field survey is just beginning.
