MERLIN Semester 96B Time Awards

The MERLIN Time Allocation Group (TAG) met on 4th and 5th of June 1996 to consider applications for observing time on MERLIN during Semester 96B (October 1996 - January 1997). 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. Lower priority approved observations are awarded B status. No commitment is given to perform B status observations although a high proportion is usually achieved. Any gaps in the approved A and B status time is filled with even lower priority C status time. These are observations which can benifit from some MERLIN observations. Any observations made are likely to be short runs of only a few hours duration, dictated by the lengths of gaps which appear in the scheduling of higher priority programmes.

40 proposals were received for semester 96B giving an oversubscription rate of 2.4.
