Canadian Cluster Comparison Project

(multi-wavelength survey of fifty X-ray-selected galaxy clusters)

The Canadian Cluster Comparison Project (CCCP) was a astronomical survey of fifty massive galaxy clusters at low redshift, aiming at studying them through study of their gravitational lensing. A goal was to determine the mass indicated by the lensing and compare that with Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect.

CCCP is also the abbreviation of another survey, the Chandra Carina Complex Project.
