Summary: This document reports on The Keystone Center's independent risk assessment regarding a possible sitting of a Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii. All findings, conclusions, and options for consideration in this report are solely the opinions of Keystone and do not reflect the views the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the TMT Observatory Corporation, or anyone other than Keystone. The Keystone Center, founded in 1975, exists for two interrelated purposes: to help solve today's most pressing, science-intensive environment, energy, and public health problems and, simultaneously, to help prepare the next generation to take the reins and do better than their predecessors. Keystone takes no position on the issues it becomes involved in but seeks to help analyze, design, and facilitate discussions when requested and when appropriate. This analysis was conducted by Dr. Peter S. Adler, President and Janesse Brewer, Senior Associate.
