%%%%% How to convert this document to PDF %%%%%%%%

% If your figures are stored as PostScript files, you can use the 
% following commands to generate a PDF file of your proposal:

%% latex file.tex
%% dvips file.dvi
%% ps2pdf file.pdf 

% If your figures are PDF images or bitmap pictures in PNG, JPG, or GIF format,
% you can use the pdflatex command to generate a PDF file from this template
% (note, however, that the pdflatex command does not handle PostScript files):

% pdflatex file.tex

%           1. You must make sure that PDF output generated from this
%              template is complete both when displayed with a viewer 
%              (acroread, for example) and when printed on paper.
%              LaTeX installations vary greatly and therefore it might 
%              not be possible to get all proposals to come out 
%              correctly with a single text page layout. 
%              In some cases you will have to adjust the 
%              \topmargin=-7mm command in the template to center the 
%              text vertically in the page.  
%           2. The scientific justification, figures, tables, references,
%              and public outreach statement must all fit within the
%              4-page limit.
%           3. You are free to include colour images in your proposal 
%              justification. Proposals are distributed to ALMA Review Panels 
%              in electronic form. However, the scientific content of the 
%              images should still remain clear when displayed or printed
%              in black and white.

\section{Scientific Justification}

Enter the scientific justification here, together with any figures and tables that you judge necessary.
%-----------------------------Figure Start---------------------------
% The 'scale' parameter below allows you to scale the figure so that it fits within the page. In this case the figure was scaled to 20% of its original size.
\caption{\em{The CO(1-0) velocity field of NGC\,3256, with contours 
of the total line emission map overlaid (ALMA Science Verification Data).
%-----------------------------Figure End------------------------------

%-----------------------------Table Start-----------------------------
\caption[]{\em{Here we show the continuum sensitivity required per band.}}
\hline \noalign {\smallskip}
Frequency (GHz) & Sensitivity (mJy) \\
\hline \noalign {\smallskip}

%-----------------------------Table End ------------------------------

You can structure the scientific justification using the two subsections below (optional).

\subsection{Scientific rationale:}

% Please describe the scientific background of the project,
% pertinent references and previous work relevant to this 
% proposal.

\subsection{Immediate objective:}

% Please describe the observations to be made and their specific
% purpose, with a clear explanation of the need for, and 
% appropriateness of, ALMA Cycle 1 data.
