Yes, you may request monitoring observations with the standalone ACA. When setting up time constraints in a standalone ACA Scheduling Block, make sure that the LAS is set so that only the ACA is used. If the TP array is also selected, you will receive a...
No, you cannot decline the Total Power observations to reduce the total time required for the proposal. The OT automatically computes whether or not 7-m Array and Total Power (TP) observations are necessary based on the 'Largest Angular Structure in sou...
The process of calibrating and imaging ALMA Compact Array (ACA) & Total Power Data (TP) data and combining with 12-m data is described in the CASA Guide M100 Band3 [https://casaguides.nrao.edu/index.php/M100_Band3]. [https://casaguides.nrao.edu/index.php/...
The Atacama Compact Array (ACA) will be automatically selected by the Observing Tool (OT) when needed (see the section "Imaging Considerations - Arrays and Configurations" in the ALMA OT User Manual) [https://almascience.org/documents-and-tools/]. The OT ...
The Atacama Compact Array (ACA), also known as the Morita Array, is composed of twelve closely spaced 7-meter antennas (7-m Array), and four 12-meter antennas for single dish observations (Total Power Array). The array is designed to enhance wide-field im...
The details of the Atacama Compact Array (ACA) are found in the ALMA Technical Handbook [http://almascience.org/documents-and-tools/latest/alma-technical-handbook]. Related Knowledgebase article: * "What is the Atacama Compact Array (ACA)?" [https:/...
