Chapters 2-4 of the
described an ambitious scientific program that takes full advantage of the project elements outlined above and imposes demanding performance specifications on the enhanced VLA. In this section, we select a few scientific highlights and mention their impact on the goals of the . In making this selection, we emphasize projects for which the changes the character of the work that can be done, or introduces entirely new capabilities. Virtually all research programs already active on the VLA will also benefit greatly from the proposed improvements.
