NST Call for Obs Proposals 2016<

As a follow-up to our SolarNews announcement on November 15, 2015, the New Jersey Institute of Technology announces the availability of a limited amount of observing time for the solar community at its Big Bear Solar observatory (BBSO) 1.6-m, off-axis New Solar Telescope (NST). The BBSO telescope allocation committee (TAC) is accepting outside proposals for the session 1 (2016 May 1 – Jun 30) observing quarter. Proposals are due Sunday, March 20, 2016. Applicants are encouraged to collaborate with BBSO/NJIT scientists to facilitate proposal preparation, observations, and data analysis. Descriptions of the NST and its instrumentation are available at www.bbso.njit.edu/NJIT_Ground-Based_Solar_Observatories.pdf

The observing proposal should be submitted via the following web link www.bbso.njit.edu/cgi-bin/NSTObsForm

Meanwhile, much of our existing data are already open to the community. The data availability with quick look movies can be found at: www.bbso.njit.edu/~vayur/NST_catalog/

Data can be requested via: www.bbso.njit.edu/~vayur/nst_requests/

There is also a list of joint NST–IRIS observations: www.bbso.njit.edu/NST-IRIS_Catalog.html

For additional information, contact: Prof. Haimin Wang (haimin.wang@njit.edu), Chair of TAC. After your submission, please send an e-mail to Prof. Wang to inform him the title and PI of the proposal.
