GALFA - H I  Projects


The table below summarizes approved GALFA H I projects. Some project names link to project web sites. All scheduled project IDs link to the relevant proposal abstract in the telescope schedule database, which also lists scheduled observations for each project. If these exceed the requested observing time, a project is deemed completed; otherwise, it is either in progress or not yet scheduled, depending on whether observations have begun. If any of this information is out of date, please contact me.

Projects that are commensal with another, non-GALSPECT project have the other project listed in parentheses. The project that is the ``commensal partner'', i.e., that which piggybacks off the ``primary'' project, is indicated with a ``c'' after the AO project ID.

This table was adapted from Snezana's old status page in April 2006.
