Observations during the last semester

Despite relatively poor late summer conditions at Plateau de Bure, we are well on the way to complete all the A-rated projects before the end of the year. Moreover, a substantial number of B-rated projects requesting essentially observations in the 80 to 115 GHz frequency window, was also carried out. All the observations were carried out with the array in 4-antenna configurations. The backlog from the previous two observing periods amounts now to less than 200 hours and will, if weather allows, be widely worked off in the month to come.

Please note that information on scheduled configurations for ongoing projects and on the current observational backlog can be retrieved from This page is updated every day.
