Documentation

This page lists ALMA related documentation aimed at scientists. It includes general information on ALMA and the European ARC, ALMA talks and presentation and training material on (sub-)millimetre interferometry. The focus is on material produced at the European ARC, and items that are likely to be of particular relevance to the European ALMA community.

Please note that most of the lectures and training material are provided via the European ALMA Twiki pages. No password is required to acces these pages.
