Sixth NAIC/NRAO School on Single Dish Radio Astronomy

Green Bank, West Virginia

10 – 16 July, 2011
Sponsored by NRAO, NAIC, NSF
NRAO and NAIC are organizing the sixth NAIC-NRAO school on single-dish radio astronomy. This will be held from 10-16 July, 2011 at the Green Bank Observatory in West Virginia. 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 using the Arecibo Telescope and the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope as the two primary examples. 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.
