3. CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR SOUTH POLE SUBMILLIMETER OBSERVING
Deadline: 15 March 2002
The Antarctic Submillimeter Telescope and Remote Observatory (AST/RO) invites proposals for use of the 1.7m telescope during the upcoming Austral winter season (2002 April-October). Proposals may be submitted by any qualified astronomer and will be evaluated based on scientific merit. Scheduled observations will be carried out by the AST/RO winterover scientists in residence at South Pole, Drs. Wilfred Walsh and Kecheng Xiao, who will be considered scientific collaborators on the observations.
SIS receivers at 800-820, 460-492, and 230 GHz are available, along with two acousto-optical spectrometers (AOS) with 1.07 MHz resolution and 1.1 GHz bandwith, and one AOS with 44 kHz resolution and 64 MHz bandwidth. Instrumental parameters are available on the AST/RO website
Proposals should include a scientific justification (not to exceed two pages + figures) and a source list with observing time estimates and justification. All proposals will be reviewed by the AST/RO Telescope Allocation Committee. A priority-ranked list of successful proposals will be carried out as weather and instrumental availablity permit.
Proposals should be sent by email before 15 March 2002, to: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
