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.
