Members:

This is not an official membership list, just a list of people you might want to contact who are actively interested in MWA Transient work.

Please also include your main MWA transient interests.

Gemma Elizabeth Anderson (Lead) 

  • MWA rapid-response (automated triggering) on high energy (GRBs, flare stars) and multi-messenger (GWs, FRBs, neutrinos) transients using the standard corrector and VCS.
  • Stokes V detections of flare stars.
  • Blind survey transient detections in both the image-plane and VCS data.
  • Ultra-long period transients.

Collaboration Policy:

Our collaboration policy document can be found at MWA Transients Collaboration Policy.

For the policy surrounding the interruptibility and priorisation of triggered MWA observation on external transient events using the MWA rapid-response capability, please see point 16 in the MWA Time Allocation Policy

Meetings:

We hold monthly telecon meetings usually at 00:00 UT on the second Thursday of the month. However, this time is variable and depends on topics and availability across time zones.

The minutes from previous meetings are available at Transients Meeting Minutes
