ALMA observations are done entirely in service mode. Projects are divided into smaller units, Scheduling Blocks, that can be scheduled when appropriate, i.e. depending on scientific rank, current weather conditions, current array configuration, etc.
– ToO activation: Principal Investigators with Target of Opportunity projects can activate their observations.
– The Project Tracker allows Principal Investigators to track the progress of their projects.
– High Priority Projects lists projects from both Cycle 0 and Cycle 1.
