Fifth NAIC/NRAO Single-Dish Summer School
July 12 – 18, 2009
NAIC (Arecibo) and NRAO (Green Bank) are organizing the fifth NAIC-NRAO
school on single-dish radio astronomy. This will be held from 12-18
July 2009 at the Arecibo observatory in Puerto Rico. The objective of
the school is to provide graduate students, post-docs, and experts in
other fields of astronomy with both knowledge and practical experience
of the techniques and applications of single-dish radio astronomy.
The school will be based around an intensive series of lectures from
experts. A significant part of each participant's time at the school
will be spent performing a hands-on radio-astronomy project. For this,
they will make observations with either the Arecibo 305-m telescope or
the Green Bank 100-m (GBT) telescope, analyze the data acquired, and
interpret the results.
