Abstract:Extragalactic point sources are an additional foreground contaminant in CMB maps; proper identification and removal of these sources is a crucial step in the analysis pipeline. From the standpoint of Extragalactic Astrophysics, point source data from the WMAP instrument can provide important information about source variability on a range of different time scales. I establish a program to search the public time-ordered WMAP datasets for under-exploited multi-band data on the variability and evolutionary properties of point sources catalogued by the WMAP team.
