Poor Weather Queue Summary : Semester 2015A GS

The queues shown in the tables below summarise the programs that constitute the "Poor Weather Queue" on GS. The Poor Weather Queue is a pilot program introduced in 2006B to fill telescope time under very poor, but usable, conditions. These programs are distinct from other queue programs in three important ways: 1) time spent on poor weather programs will not be charged to the PIs or the partner countries; 2) poor weather programs can exist in queue only, and must meet the observing condition constraints shown below; and 3) poor weather programs are lower priority than the "regular" queue (bands 1 to 3) and have no explicit or implicit guarantee of being observed. They will be executed only when nothing in the regular queue is observable.

In all other respects — NGO and Gemini contact scientist support, Phase II definitions, Gemini Science Archive data distribution — programs in the Poor Weather Queue are similar to all other Gemini queue programs. In the Observing Tool, poor weather queue programs are designated as Band 4, to distinguish them from the rest of the queue.

Observing condition constraints for poor weather programs must meet one of the following:

This report is generated daily (see the bottom of the page for the current timestamp). The pages linked via Completion Status are updated approximately every 4 hours. Note that the completion fraction may change as the time accounting is adjusted during the quality assessment process.


The columns in the table for Gemini South are:
Ref # Gemini reference number (note that this is different from any internal National TAC reference number). Click on it to see the proposal abstract (when available).
PI Name of Principal Investigator. (If a joint proposal, the name of the primary contact for the entire program is listed).
Partner Partner (UH = University of Hawaii, GS=Gemini staff) or country (US, UK, CA, CL, AU, AR, BR) to which time will be charged. If a joint proposal, all contributors are shown.
Title The title of the science program.
Instrument Name of the instrument(s) required.
Hours Allocated Time allocated to the program (if a joint proposal, this is the total time for the program).
Execution Status Click on this hyperlink to see the current status of each observation in the program.
Data Taken The UT date(s) on which data were taken.
Completion Status This shows an estimate of the fraction of allocated time that has been used. Note that this is a preliminary estimate and is only an indication of the completion state of the program. The completion state may not reflect the formal time accounting. Also note that some programs may be completed in less than the allocated time (e.g. if conditions were better than requested or if the request was overestimated).

The assigned support staff (Gemini Contact Scientists and National Office staff) for each Gemini North ODB and Gemini South ODB program are listed in the interactive 'snapshots' of the Observing Database (ODB).
