Announcement of intent to release a new installment of Science Verification data

Jul 09, 2015

A new installment of Science Verification data is planned for release on 28 July 2015.

The data release will consist of the following Science Verification targets:
• M100 observations of the CO(1-0) line in Band 3 with the 7-m Array and Total Power (TP) Array, along with an update of previously released 12-m data, demonstrating ALMA's ACA (7-m and TP Arrays) and data combination capabilities. The data will be accompanied by a CASA guide that describes how to combine data from the ACA with 12-m data.
• 3C 286 observations of continuum in Band 6, demonstrating ALMA's polarization capability. The data will be accompanied by a CASA guide that describes the calibration and imaging of polarization data.

Details of the targets will be listed on the Science Verification web page.

Future Science Verification data releases will also be preceded by a similar announcement of intent.
