ALMA Data Processing Workshops

George Privon National Radio Astronomy Observatory

The North American ALMA Science Center (NAASC) and the Cycle 9 ALMA Ambassadors have organized a series of workshops on the processing and analysis of ALMA data. These workshops will take place in October 2022. The goal of these events is to train users on basic data processing and analysis techniques that they may need to use ALMA for scientific discovery. Topics may include:

  • Imaging/cleaning of continuum and spectral line observations
  • Self-calibration
  • Imaging of data from multiple array configurations
  • Using the pipeline weblog and rerunning the imaging pipeline
  • Using CARTA (Cube Analysis and Rendering Tool for Astronomy) for image visualization and analysis
  • Science Ready Data Products
  • What's new in CASA (Common Astronomy Software Applications)
  • The ALMA press release process

Information on the locations and dates for these workshops is available on the NAASC Community Events web page and in the table below. Early registration is encouraged to facilitate tailoring the workshops to the interests of the attendees.
