Science Program 2017B

by Davis Murphy last modified Jun 02, 2017 by Mark Claussen

A total of 45 new proposals were received for the 1 February submission deadline for Semester 2017B. The table below summarizes the approved observing programs for the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) / High Sensitivity Array (HSA). 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 17B are included.

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