Abstract: MOJAVE (Monitoring Of Jets in AGN with VLBA Experiments) is an ongoing Very Long Baseline Array program to investigate the parsec-scale evolution of relativistic jets associated with active galactic nuclei (AGN). It is currently providing milliarcsecond-resolution, full polarization images at regular intervals of the brightest 133 jets in the northern sky at a wavelength of 2 cm. Our study represents a significant improvement over previous surveys in terms of image fidelity, size, and completeness, and will serve to characterize the kinematics and magnetic fields of AGN jets and determine how these are connected with other source properties.
