We use iSHELL with its high-resolution slits [0.375' and 0.75'] to cover M band [4.52-5.25 um] emission from inner disk CO gas in targets visible in this semester. This program complements data that has already been obtained with iSHELL in previous semesters towards building a total sample of ~100 disks, and will provide a spectrally-complete, homogeneous dataset at high spectral resolution and high signal-to-noise. The survey science-ready spectra are available to the community on within 1 month of observation. This dataset is enabling multiple investigations crossing fields of disks, winds, and exoplanets, to study the structure, kinematics, chemistry, and evolution of the inner 10 au in Protoplanetary Disks around stars of mass > 0.5 Msol. This program complements and supports extensive campaigns that are observing disks at optical, infrared, and millimeter wavelengths, including upcoming infrared spectra from JWST in Cycle 1.
