GBO/AO Single Dish and Observer Training Workshops (May 11-20, 2020)


We are pleased to announce that this year the Arecibo and Green Bank Observatories are organizing the 2020 GBO/AO single dish (May 11-15) and observer training workshop (May 16-20) which will be held at the Green Bank Observatory, WV. The goal of the workshop is to provide participants with an in-depth knowledge on the fundamentals of single-dish radio astronomy, interferometry, instrumentation and associated techniques.

The workshop includes a series of lectures followed by Arecibo and GBO observer training sessions. The hands-on sessions will include observation preparation and data reduction covering pulsar, spectral lines, and radar observations.

This will be a great opportunity for graduate students and first time users to learn how to operate two of the world's largest radio telescopes. Please pass on the information to anyone interested.
