NOAO Science Programs
Scientists at NOAO undertake many research programs, ranging from solar physics to the structure of the universe on the largest scales. A few of these projects are described on the NOAO Science Programs page, which includes additional links to provide more information.
Approved NOAO Survey Programs
Ten programs were recommended for approval by the NOAO Survey Panel of the Telescope Allocation Panel and approved by the NOAO Director during the 1999 and 2000 Survey Proposal rounds. The average allocation of telescope time for these programs is about 100 nights total spread over typically 6 semesters. Two to four different telescopes are utilized by each program. The successful 1999 and 2000 NOAO Survey Programs are identified on the Survey page.
