Release of ALMA Observations of the Galactic Center

Sep 06, 2016

ALMA observations of the Galactic Center obtained on July 12 and 18, 2016 UT are now available in the ALMA archive. The ALMA data were obtained using Director’s Discretionary Time under project code 2015.A.00021.S (Principal Investigator Gunther Witzel) and are being made available to the community with no proprietary period. 

The ALMA observations consist of Band 6 spectral line (13CO J=2-1 and H30 alpha) and continuum observations. Data were obtained for about 5 hours on each night. The timing of the observations coincides with a Spitzer and Chandra monitoring campaign of the Galactic Center.

A description of the Spitzer/Chandra monitoring campaign is available at https://www.cfa.harvard.edu/irac/gc.
