Johns Hopkins University - Department of Physics and Astronomy ( JHU )

About the Henry A. Rowland Department of Physics and Astronomy: Current research activities can be divided roughly into five areas: solid-state physics, high-energy physics, astrophysics, plasma spectroscopy, and theoretical physics. Work in the Center for Astrophysical Sciences (CAS) at JHU is now centered in three areas: developing instrumentation for astronomical observations, particularly from space; optical observational astronomy from the ground and space; and theory.Two large space astronomy projects are currently active in CAS: the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope, a far-UV spectrophotometer which made its first flight aboard the space shuttle in December, 1990, and its second flight on March 2, 1995; and the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer, a free-flying satellite whose launch is expected in 2000.

Joint Institute for VLBI in Europe / European VLBI Network ( JIVE / EVN )

The European VLBI Network (EVN) was formed in 1980 by a consortium of five of the major radio astronomy institutes in Europe (the European Consortium for VLBI). Since 1980, the EVN and the Consortium has grown to include 9 institutes with 12 telescopes in 8 western European countries as well as associated institutes with telescopes in Poland, Russia, Ukraine and China. Proposals for additional telescopes in Spain and Italy are under consideration, and furthermore, the EVN can be linked to the 7-element Jodrell Bank MERLIN interferometer in the UK and to the US Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) to create a " global network" . In 1993 the Joint Institute for VLBI in Europe (JIVE) was created, with the Netherlands Foundation for Research in Astronomy (Dwingeloo) acting as the host institute. It will provide both scientific user support and a correlator facility. Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) achieves ultra-high angular resolution and is a multi-disciplinary technique e.g. imaging of extragalactic radio sources, geodesy and astrometry. See EVN-TWG Meeting . There is also an EVN anonFTP directory at JB .

Journal of Astronomical Data

The Journal of Astronomical Data accepts raw and reduced data from observations as well as from theoretical research, reduction software, complete descriptions of new instruments, PhD theses with extensive data tables, catalogues, graphs, computer code, and also lengthy articles, or regular articles accompanied by the data on which it is based.
Contributions describe in short the astrophysical background and motive for the scientific work done, a complete description of the data-collecting process, an assessment of the accuracy of the data, next to the data themselves.
All data are published on CD-ROM.
