2017B Science Program

Green Bank Observatory 2017B Science Program

A total of 87 proposals requesting NSF funded “open skies” time were submitted to the Green Bank Observatory’s Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT) were received for the February 1, 2017 deadline for semester 17B.  The table below summarizes the approved observing programs for the GBT.  Listed are the PI name, proposal ID, proposal title, maximum hours approved and proposal type (Regular, Triggered, Large or External).  Proposals from previous semesters that were awarded time in the 17B semester are included.  The table also includes HSA and GMVA proposals that were awarded time on the GBT as a VLBI station as well as proposal accepted via external agreements with CHANDRA, Hubble Space Telescope, FERMI and Swift.

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

A description of the Time Allocation Committee report for 17B can be found at 2017B Proposal Call Results.
