Joint Call for Proposals, 2013B

To the Astronomical Communities of Italy and the Nordic Countries Joint Call for Proposals, 2013B

Following the recommendations to ASTRONET on the future use of Europe's 2-4m telescopes as presented in the ETSRC report (see here), INAF andNOTSA, owners of the TNG and NOT telescopes on La Palma, Canary Islands, have agreed to enter into a closer collaboration. As an initial step toward a more comprehensive integration, an agreement has been signed for common use of facilities and services at their offices which are now located next to each other in San Antonio on La Palma.

Here we offer observing time at both telescopes for the two communities in a joint call for proposals for the coming semester 2013B (AOT28 in TNG nomenclature; Period 48 in NOT nomenclature). Note that the 2013B semester will start on the 1st of September for TNG and on the 1st of October for NOT.

There will be:

• 10 nights at TNG open for Nordic proposals

• 20 nights at NOT open for Italian proposals

Information on the available instrumentation can be found at

www.tng.iac.es/instruments/

and at

www.not.iac.es/instruments/.

The nationality of a given proposal will be determined by the nationality of the PI (provided at least 50% of PI+CoIs are Italian and/or Nordic).

Applications for each telescope should use the proposal form for the telescope they are applying for, following the instructions supplied at

www.tng.iac.es/submit.html

and at

www.not.iac.es/observing/proposals/P48/

The deadline for the submission of proposals is 12 UT on the 2nd of May 2013.

Proposals will be evaluated by the relevant telescope committee (TAC for TNG and OPC for NOT). Joint ‘Italo-Nordic’ proposals and/or proposals using both telescopes are encouraged.

In case both telescopes are requested, proposals to each telescope should be submitted, where in principle the scientific justification will be the same in both forms, and only the technical justification relevant for the specific telescope is given in each proposal separately.

It is our intention to expand this system of offering observing time at both telescopes in future semesters. We hope that this announcement will mark the begin of a scientific synergy between our communities, and lead to a further enhancement in the scientific productivity of both telescopes.

BepiColombo saluta la Terra

03/04/2020

L'appuntamento con il nostro pianeta è previsto il 10 aprile. Per arrivare alla meta, la sonda effettuerà altri voli ravvicinati per sfruttare le spinte gravitazionali: due attorno a Venere e sei attorno a Mercurio

A inseguir le stelle sopra Ragusa

03/04/2020

Il lockdown di questi giorni ha fermato tutto e tutti. Quello che non ha fermato è il movimento apparente delle stelle nella volta celeste, dovuto alla rotazione della Terra attorno al proprio asse. Un movimento che l’astrofotografo ragusano Gianni Tumino ha immortalato dalla terrazza di casa in una foto che la Nasa ha scelto lo scorso 28 marzo come Apod, Astronomy Picture Of the Day. Lo abbiamo intervistato

Che tempo farà su Marte?

03/04/2020

Un nuovo modello degli strati alti dell’atmosfera marziana permetterà di fare previsioni meteo del Pianeta rosso molto più accurate rispetto al passato, grazie all’analisi delle onde di gravità capaci di influenzare periodicamente la dinamica atmosferica. Ne parliamo con Gabriella Gilli dell’Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço portoghese, prima autrice dell’articolo appena uscito su Journal of Geophysical Research
