NRAO Community Event at the GSFC


The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) cordially invites you to the NRAO Community Event at the 46th DPS meeting, on Thursday November 13th from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm, in the Tucson Ballroom G at the JW Marriott Starr Pass. This event is specifically designed for planetary scientists, and in particular those who do not regularly use radio data in their research. If you would like to learn more about the planetary science research that is enabled by NRAO facilities: this session is for you.

The event is free for DPS attendees and no registration is required. However we strongly encourage early registration here, so that we can best organize the event and add you to the event e-mail list for further communication. We will also provide lunch for the first 30 registering guests. The registration list has reached 30 attendees as of November 3d. Registrations are still welcome and encouraged, but unfortunately we won't be able to provide lunch for attendees registering after November 3d.

Exciting planetary science research is being pursued with cm/mm/submm observations thanks to the enhanced capabilities of the Jansky Very Large Array (JVLA), the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT), and the transformational millimeter/submillimeter Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA). We will provide a brief overview of these facilities and their capabilities for planetary science, followed by three broad talks by members of the community illustrating the variety of science cases which can be addressed. We will also provide practical information on how to design and optimize proposals for the next ALMA and NRAO calls for proposals.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the DPS!

A. Moullet, B. Butler and A. Ford (NRAO)
