Asteroseismology with SuperWASP
Stellar, Exoplanet and Galactic Science from Massive, High-precision Variability Surveys
Barry Smalley
Keele University
The highly successful SuperWASP planetary transit-finding programme has surveyed a large fraction of both the northern and southern skies. There now exists in the its archive over 300 billion photometric measurements for more than 30 million stars. SuperWASP provides good quality photometry with a precision
exceeding 1 percent per observation in the approximate magnitude range 9 - 12. The archive enables long-baseline, high-cadence studies of stellar variability
to be undertaken. An overview of the SuperWASP project will be presented, along
with results which demonstrates the survey's asteroseismic capabilities.
