CalMS Service approaching the 2000 MOUS mark with new features

Published: 26 Apr 2022

Since Oct 2019, the EU ARC is offering its users the "CalMS" service which has so far provided 155 unique users with more than 1750 calibrated MeasurementSets (MSs). As its popularity increases, further features are added to the system. Users can now:

  • immediately produce line images and cubes making use of the continuum subtraction performed by the pipeline,
  • request the calibrated data for particular calibrator targets,
  • identify MOUSs which belong to the same Group OUS.

New development study to investigate the potential of ALMA Advanced Data Products

Published: 26 Apr 2022

Current ALMA products can be characterized as "science-ready calibration, informative imaging". This means that PIs and archive users may need to repeat the imaging process to obtain products that are optimised for their specific scientific analysis. The purpose of this new development study is to investigate the potential interest of generating "science-optimised" products. These Advanced Data Products may include:

  • science-grade products for every ALMA observing project;
  • high-level science products based on, e.g., the combination of different observations of the same object;
  • derived products such as catalogues, spectra, SEDs, etc.

Using ALMA archival data - A Primer

Published: 18 Mar 2022

ALMA has released a new document for Cycle 9 called Using ALMA archival data - A Primer.  This document provides basic introductory information of how to use the ALMA data available through the ALMA Science Archive (ASA), including how to query, extract and scientifically exploit the content of the ASA. The aim is to assist readers with the exploitation of archived ALMA data by providing a concise summary of the data and practical examples that include CASA tasks.
