Does the sensitivity calculator account for shadowing?

Yes. ALMA Sensitivity Calculator now takes into account the shadowing effect, by reducing the effective antenna surface area according to the target declination. More detailed information is available in Chapter "ALMA Sensitivity Calculator" of Technical Handbook, and in Section "Sensitivity Calculator" of OT User Manual.
