Overview of DSS Observing Efficiencies: 

DSS Overview LegendThe color coding in the plot is similar to that used in the Overview of DSS Observing Efficiencies except what is plotted here is H=eta instead of H=eta*leff/etamin.  Green through blue indicates times and frequencies where the Dynamic Scheduling System (DSS) believes a project will be most productive.  Yellows through red are those frequencies and times when the DSS believes would be an unproductive use of the telescope.   A light blue background indicates frequencies which are not yet covered by the DSS algorithms or are times for which there are no forecasted values.  The blue vertical line indicates the time when this plot was last updated, usually within the last two hours.  The DSS algorithms apply to forecasted opacities for Hot Springs, VA only.
