CARMA Call for Proposals, Semester 2014a

Wednesday, November 27, 2013 - 16:50

CARMA, the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy, is accepting observing proposals for its 2014a semester, which will extend from 25 February 2014 to 18 August 2014.

CARMA comprises 23 antennas operating in the Inyo Mountains of California at an elevation of 2,200 meters. All 23 antennas are equipped with receivers for the 3 mm (85-115 GHz) and 1 cm (27-36 GHz) wavelength bands. The 15 largest antennas are equipped with dual-polarization receivers for 1 mm wavelengths (215-265 GHz). CARMA typically operates either as a 23-element array or as independent subarrays of 15 antennas and 8 antennas.

Approximately 30% of the awarded time will be given to PIs outside the CARMA partner universities. Proposals may be submitted using the electronic form. For help with submitting proposals and the proposal system, please email us. Detailed information, including tools to assist you in preparing proposals, is available online.

If you require help in understanding CARMA instrument capabilities, please contact CARMA's Help Desk.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 23:00 GMT (17:00 CST) on 14 January 2014.
