Early science capabilities

Early Science Capabilities


Alma early science preparation tutorial

  • See Primer for more detailed information on ALMA (ES vs. Full, ES science examples, basics of interferometry


Alma early science

ALMA Early Science

  • Early Science proposals with LIMITED capability (compared to full ALMA)

    • See Pre-announcement released yesterday!

    • 16 x 12m antennas

    • Bands 3, 6, 7 and 9 available (see mousepad/primer for reference)

    • Limited correlator setups available (see primer)

    • 250m baselines (~ 0.4” at 0.5mm, 2.4” at 3mm)

  • NOTE: 16 ants = limited UV coverage so careful with imaging projects

  • Large surveys, large maps may be difficult in ES

  • See ES examples in the primer


Your path for using alma for es i

Your Path for using ALMA for ES- I

  • Generating Science Ideas / Getting to Know ALMA

    • NRAO website, mousepad, primer

    • AAS special sessions, NAASC Science workshops, community events days, tutorials

  • Writing a proposal

    • ALMA Observing Tool (walk-through here)

      • Calculator, Splatalogue

    • Simdata(walk-through here)

    • Helpdesk

Your path for using alma for es ii

Your Path for using ALMA for ES - II

  • Future NAASC-sponsored tutorials will cover steps 3 & 4

    • Getting the data (and re-processing it)

      • ALMA Observing tool (Phase II)

      • Project tracker

      • ALMA Science Archive

      • CASA & Pipeline

      • Visiting the NAASC

    • Publicizing Results

      • Page charges (standard NRAO policy)

      • NRAO EPO Office
