APOKASC is a collaboration between APOGEE's spectroscopic survey in the near IR at Apache Point (SDSS) and Kepler Asteroseismic Science Consortium (KASC) for the study of red-giant stars. The aim of the collaboration is to take advantage of the good spectroscopic data of APOGEE together with the excellent KASC asteroseismic data from the Kepler mission to derive reliable and precise masses and ages for a large number of red-giant stars by combining data from the two sources. We report here on the progress to date on the just over 6600 stars being considered.
