After the deadline of March 05 2012, umbrella time was allocated to seven Reserved Access proposals for Cycle 0:
||Solar Observations with LOFAR|
||LOFAR surveys: Opening up a new window on the Universe
||The LOFAR Transients Key Science Project|
||Cosmic Ray KSP Reserved Access Proposal
|LRA12A006||G. de Bruyn
||Studying the Epoch of Reionization and Cosmic Dawn of the Universe|
||Observations of Interplanetary Scintillation (IPS) with LOFAR|
||The LOFAR Magnetism Key Science Project (MKSP)|
[Table 1 provides the text of the publc part of the submitted Reserved access proposals]
The proposals were rated by the LOFAR Programme Committee, who took into account the evaluation of the Technical Review Board.
The National LOFAR Consortia then allocated a number of observing hours and full CEP2 equivalent processing hours to each project.
The Consortia, at this time, did not consider specific allocations to requests for commensal observations (for example using the Transient Buffer Boards). Several Reserved Access proposals requested substantial commensal observing projects. It will be possible to accommodate a number of these for Cycle 0. Based on Regular Proposals and comments from the national consortia, detailed commensal observing rights will be set by the PC.
The summary of National LOFAR Consortia allocations is given in the Table below.
