Crux Watches Over ALMA

The German ARC node offers hands-on training in the reduction and analysis of ALMA data in their online Master-level course "Radio Interferometry 2021" which runs from April to July 2021. More information can be found here

In weekly sessions via zoom, the participants are guided through the various steps necessary to create fully calibrated data cubes from ALMA raw data. In the second part of the course, the participants learn how to construct image data cubes and maps from the calibrated data and how to analyze the data. The hands-on work is complemented by overview talks on the basic concepts of radio interferometry and on various special cases of radio interferometric data.
