* Proposal M21BP010: The night-time allocation is as listed above. However, the proposal was additionally awarded up to 82h of EO time for use in Bands 1-4.
** Proposal M21BP050: Time allocation is treated here as a ToO trigger, to allow (near-)simultaneous data acquisition with IRAM for two epochs, one month apart. JCMT time allocation contingent upon approval of corresponding IRAM time allocation.
*** A “Total Hrs” entry in magenta indicates a contingency amount of time. This may be subsequently reduced if some fraction of the time is used up by the 21A version of the project. Other project allocations may also be reduced if their fallback projects from earlier semesters obtain additional data during semester 21A.
