Program Description: The Large Aperture Gamma Ray Observatory is a multi-site facility designed to observe the high-energy component of GRBs. This international collaboration has constructed a network of ground-based water Cherenkov detectors (WCDs). Sites are located at mountain altitudes to study high-energy GRBs, where the flux of the primary gamma rays is too low for effective detection by small-area satellite-borne detectors. Three sites are in operation: Mexico, Bolivia, Peru. Construction started in 2006, and LAGO has been taking data since 2007.
Year Started: 2007.
Organization Description: LAGO is a collaboration formed by approximately 75 people from 25 scientific institutes representing 12 countries. The group’s focus in on developing astrophysics in developing countries.
Data Description: Most challenging is getting data from remote mountain sites to the lab.
