Scientific paper

We present the beginning of a multi-wavelength study of TeV blazars with the WIYN 0.9 meter telescope, the VERITAS/Whipple gamma-ray telescope, and the AMANDA/IceCube neutrino detectors. Corresponding optical and gamma-ray observations were taken of Mrk 421, Mrk 501, and 1ES 1959+650 in April and June of 2006. We aim to determine the flux variability of our sources and locate flaring moments to verify the timing dependence of neutrino occurrences and form a basis for a blinded neutrino analysis for AMANDA-II and IceCube. This work was supported by the National Science Foundation's REU program and the Department of Defense's ASSURE program through NSF Award AST-0453442
