TEXES Demo Science Plan

The call for TEXES Demonstration Science proposals was made on May 15, 2006, with a deadline for receiving proposals of June 7, 2006. The PIs of successful SV applications have now been notified.  

The table below summarizes the pool of observations which have been selected and approved by the Gemini Science Committee. The total available time for TEXES-DS is 36.67 hours. The observations are scheduled for July 8-11, 2006. As usual the presence of a proposed observation in the DS plan does not by any means guarantee that the observation will be executed.
