Global Relay of Observatories Watching Transients Happen

GROWTH is an international collaboration among astronomers who pool resources to study astrophysical transient sources. Our key science goals are to study the electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational wave sources, young supernovae, and near earth asteroids. You can learn more at the GROWTH collaboration website.
