Science Program 2017A

by Davis Murphy last modified Nov 26, 2016 by Mark Claussen

A total of 37 new proposals were received for the 1 August submission deadline for Semester 2017A. The table below summarizes the approved observing programs for the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) / High Sensitivity Array (HSA) / Global 3mm VLBI Array (GMVA). Listed are the PI name, proposal ID, proposal title, maximum hours approved, and proposal type (Regular, Triggered, or Large). Proposals from previous semesters that were awarded time by LBO in 16B are included.

For each approved program, the Proposal Finder Tool will have access to its authors, title, abstract, and total approved hours.
