Science Program 2015A

by Davis Murphy last modified Dec 12, 2014

A total of 375 new proposals were received for the 1 August 2014 submission deadline for Semester 2015A. In aggregate the proposals covered the broad spectrum of modern research in astronomy and astrophysics. A total of 1432 unique authors submitted proposals to the Observatory, with 1051, 358 and 258 proposers competing for time on the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA), the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT), and the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) / High Sensitivity Array (HSA), respectively.

The tables below list the approved observing programs for Semester 2015A for the GBT, for the VLA, and for the VLBA / HSA. The following is provided for each approved program: PI name, proposal ID, proposal title, maximum hours approved, and proposal type (Regular or Triggered or Large). The Observatory is also pleased to list approvals stemming from its new joint opportunities with the HST and Swift missions.

For the GBT, the tabulated hours are for 15A proposals only.

For the VLA and the VLBA / HSA, the tabulated hours are those intended for execution in Semester 2015A.  A few programs have been pre-approved for time intended for execution in a future semester, and such programs will also appear in the tables for the relevant future semester.

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

Four separate observing classifications are possible: General Observing (GO),  Shared Risk Observing (SRO), Resident Shared Risk Observing (RSRO), and EVLA Commissioning Staff Observing (ECSO). In the proposal type column, a superscript "s" indicates the SRO classification, a superscript "r" indicates the RSRO classification, a superscript "e" indicates the ECSO classification, and no superscript indicates the GO classification.

Three separate observing classifications are possible: General Observing (GO),  Shared Risk Observing (SRO), and Resident Shared Risk Observing (RSRO). In the proposal type column, a superscript "s" indicates the SRO classification, a superscript "r" indicates the RSRO classification, and no superscript indicates the GO classification.
