The MERLIN Time Allocation Group of the Panel for the Allocation of Telescope Time met on 9th December 1998 to consider 42 proposals for Semester 99A (1st February 1999 to 31st August 1999. Proposals were received for C-Band (4.5 - 5.2 GHz) and L-Band (1.4 - 1.7 GHz). The amount of time approved in each band is set both by the approved time in the successful proposals and joint EVN+MERLIN commitments within Semester 99A. There are two EVN sessions within this period (February 11th to March 2nd, and May 27th to June 17th). The MERLIN homestation is the Mk2 telescope unless otherwise stated.
Time was awarded in the following categories:
A and TO: Highest priority -- Observations are not guaranteed, but in the past all or almost all of the observations in this category are usually completed. TO time is for Target of Opportunity observations. Should these not arise they are covered by additional B priority time.
B: Lower priority -- No commitment is given to complete observations in this category, though a significant number are usually observed. For certain projects, this may include observations with a subset of the MERLIN array.
C: Fill-in -- Short observations of a few hours duration for projects in this category may be used to fill scheduling gaps in the A and B programme.
Programmes with K P Status are MERLIN KEY PROGRAMMES. These projects may be awarded large amounts of time, but on the condition that the data be made available to the community in an easily digestible form within a year of the completion of the observations. Observations may span more than one Semester. Information of any KEY PROGRAMME commitments for observations in later Semesters is not listed here but is contained within the detailed feedback forwarded to the project PI.
