LAOF Queue

The LAOF Long-Term Planning Schedule or "Queue" below lists, in chronological order, approved, requested, and prospective field campaigns that require LAOF support. The chart is primarily used to plan ahead and to allow NSF and the LAOF Partner Organizations to assess future facility demand and resource needs. It is not intended to discourage investigators from submitting a facility requested for a desired time slot, even if other potential field campaigns are already included. NSF jointly with the LAOF Partner Organizations will make a concerted effort to maximize field support. 

Facility-specific planning charts for the University of Wyoming King Air and the NSF/NCAR aircraft are also available.

The funding status of each campaign is highlighted in green for approved, pink for requested, and yellow for Statement of Interest (SOI). NCAR support services include Data Management (DM), Field Catalog (FC), Project Management (PM), Educational Outreach & Media support (EO), Forecasting (F), Networking & Data Communications (Net), and Operations Center (OC).
