 abstract of observational proposal
The data obtained by the HOP81 observations show that the longitudinal dependence of polar reversal is large. Especially, the dependence becomes important for understanding the progress of polar reversal when polar reversal is progressing to the final phase. Hence, we propose the special observation for taking the panorama map of magnetic field around Pole. If we want to make the panorama map that covers until 65 degrees latitude, we need to perform the polar observation every 3.5 days during one month. Considering the matters about Hinode operation (flares, satellite operation, etc.), we request to perform the polar observation every 3 days. It means that we need to perform 10 polar observations for one panorama map during one month.

Study 000582:
ACRONYM: HOP81_new_study

This is the same study that is used for HOP 81. It performs a large scan of the polar region in coordination with SOT/SP measurements of the magnetic field.

TARGET        : Coronal hole
EXPOSURE TIME : 50s
RASTER        : Scanning
SLIT          : 2" (was 1")
STEP_SIZE     : 4" (was 1")
FOV           : 322"x384"
SPECTRAL WIND.: 24 (was 12)
DATA COMP.    : DCPM  
RASTER DURATON: 1h14m
DATA VOLUME   : 140 Mbits (was 150 Mbits)
LINES         : Fe VIII, Fe X, Fe XI, Fe XII, Fe XIII,
               He II, O V, Mg VI, Mg VII, Si VII, Si X
               Fe IX, Fe XIV, Fe XV, Fe XVI, S X, Ar XI

POINTING:
---------

Polar coronal hole with fixed pointing.
Make sure to cover SOT FOV and the solar limb.

INSTRUCTION TO PLANNERS:
------------------------

Start this study at the beginning of the SAA free period (roughly 10-15UT). Repeat the study several times avoiding Hinode eclipses. The later part may coincide with a short SAA.

Note: The plan for FSM is the same as that for DSM.

WARNING:
--------

Avoid SAAs as much as possible (SAA degrades data compression factors and mutilates the data)

 other participating instruments
IRIS can support HOP 206 with the following program, at pointings of 0, }910:
3600110077  |  Very large dense 320-step raster 105.3x175 arcsec FOV

 remarks
-------------------------------
[Target of HOP206]
March: Only South Pole
September : Only North Pole
--------------------------------
Pointing: [0, 900] (for North Pole), [0,-920] (for South Pole)
  >>When CP fixs the coordinates of the pointing for HOP81,
      CP must apply the SOT-UFSS offset to the coordinates.<<
Frequency: One observation per 3 days.
Period: 30 days (10 Observations)
Period for one observation: 6 hours (Time for twice polar scans of SOT-SP)

[Guideline about postponing] (edited on 2015.04.02)
The guideline about postponing HOPs during a Major Flare Watch was written before HOP 206 came along.  This HOP is unique in that it requires observations every 2 or 3 (or maybe 4) days for a month to capture the polar fields, and the chance comes only in March and September.  The guideline says synoptic HOPs may be delayed up to 3 days; but HOP 206 by its nature has a maximum delay of 3 days (maybe 4).  The tradeoff is between missing a possible large flare in a 7-hour period, versus causing a significant gap in an observation that takes a month to do. Therefore, the CP & COs are urged not to allow gaps of more than 4 days in a sequence of HOP 206 runs, even if there is a Major Flare Watch.
