Radio Astronomy, Arecibo, and using ALFA and L-band Wide for ALFALFA

This page is intended to provide a framework for getting students involved in the ALFALFA team collaboration. It is a work in progress..


The ALFA drift scans for the ALFALFA survey were completed on October 26, 2012, after 6.5 years, 4,741.5 hours and 808 observing runs. You can read about the final observing run on the ALFALFA blog. Starting in 2012, we began a coordinated campaign of followup targeted observations using the L-band wide receiver.
