The Herschel Astrophysical Terahertz Large Area Survey (ATLAS) is the largest Open Time Key Project on the Herschel Space Observatory. This legacy survey will cover 550 deg2, an order of magnitude larger than all other Herschel extragalactic surveys combined, and will provide more extragalactic sources than all other Herschel surveys combined. Herschel ATLAS builds on the ground-breaking AKARI All-Sky Survey and has six primary science themes, described here. More information can be found on the consortium web site,
