ALMA Cycle 7 Science Observations Status Update

Published: 16 Jul 2021

Cycle 7 PI science observations have been continuing, although with some significant interruption due to snowstorms at the end of May and in mid-June. Combined with pandemic conditions affecting maximum staffing levels at the site, this led to a delay in reaching the 12-m Array C43-7 configuration (completed on 12 July). Unfortunately, the delay has an impact on the configuration schedule for the remainder of Cycle 7.

Amplitude calibration issue affecting some ALMA data

Published: 15 Jul 2021

A visibility amplitude calibration error that affects fields containing strong line emission has been discovered in ALMA interferometer observations up to and including Cycle 7.

ALminer: ALMA archive mining and visualization toolkit

Published: 14 Jul 2021

ALminer (ALMA archive mining and visualization toolkit) is a novel Python-based code that enables users to efficiently query, analyse, and visualize the ALMA Science Archive. Users can programmatically query the archive for positions, target names, or any other keywords in the archive metadata (e.g. proposal title, abstract, scientific category) in a simple way. For more information about how to install and use ALminer, please visit the documentation or GitHub pages.

I-TRAIN: summer break and recordings from past events

Published: 13 Jul 2021

The training series I-TRAIN organised by the European ARC Network will be paused during the European summer months and then resumed in the autumn. In the meantime, videos and materials of the past sessions can be accessed from the ALMA Science Portal, including the last trainings on self-calibration and polarisation observations with ALMA.

Celebrating 1001 MOUSs delivered with calMS

Published: 02 Jul 2021

On 2 July 2021, the EU ARC CalMS service provided the calibrated dataset (MOUS) number 1001.The service was launched in October 2019 and has now been extended to be capable of serving up to several 100 MOUSs per month.

Source-Search from SIMBAD and NED

Published: 24 Jun 2021

The ALMA Science Archive query interface can now show all sources from SIMBAD and NED that fall into any of the ALMA observations. It is furthermore possible for the users to search for particular categories of sources.
