MERLIN Semester 96A Time Awards

The MERLIN Time Allocation Group (TAG) met on 6th and 7th of December 1995 to consider applications for observing time on MERLIN during Semester 96A (February 1996 - July 1996). Following previous practice, the highest priority time is awarded A status. Observations cannot be guaranteed, though historically virtually all A status time has been observed. A status time for targets of opportunity is designated as TO time. Any gaps in the scheduled A status time is filled with lower priority B status time. This backup time is then further divided into categories B1 and B2 where B1 has the greater priority. B2 backup time is normally only considered if TO time is not utilised. No commitment is given to perform backup observations although a number of higher priority backup runs are usually achieved.

23 proposals were received for semester 96A giving an oversubscription rate of 1.5.
