Treasure hunting with tools of ALMA archive

[ Poster PS53 ]

Kuo-Song Wang (ASIAA); the ARC-Taiwan team

ALMA has delivered a huge amount of magnificent images of the universe in the past few years. The image quality, in terms of dynamical range, angular resolution, spectral resolution, and sensitivity, has been improved by orders of magnitude compared to the classic radio interferometers such the SMA, the CARMA, and the PdBI. This enables astronomers to conduct transformational science which cannot be done in the past. The high-quality ALMA data are very informational and many unexpected new discoveries have been reported. However, requesting ALMA observing time is quite challenging and there is only one chance per year. Therefore, astronomers have to be patient before getting data in hand. On the contrary, the ALMA archives which contain all past ALMA observations are immediately available for everyone to make new discoveries. In this oral presentation, we will introduce tools for treasure hunting in the ALMA archives.
