After a one-year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic, ALMA Cycle 7 science observations resumed on March 17, 2021, on a best-effort basis using 30-some antennas on the 12-m Array while the Array recovery was ongoing. Science observations with the Morita Array (ACA) restarted on May 18, 2021, using eight antennas. While some delays were […]

The 5th Netherlands ALMA Science day was hosted by the Allegro team on the 29th November, 2021. For the second time in a row this was a fully on-line version. The scientific program included invited and contributed talks highlighting results of projects with all or part of the data taken by the ALMA telescope. The […]
Allegro hosted an online data reduction training day on November 30th 2021 for 27 registered participants from the Netherlands and, thanks to the virtual format, further afield. On the day, Allegro fellows gave talks on accessing data from the ALMA archive and how to calibrate, image, self-calibrate and analyse that data as well as how […]
Using Cycle 6 ALMA observations of the far-infrared bright radio galaxy PKS0023-26, Morganti et al. study the impact of the jet that is driven by the black hole powering the Active Galactic Nucleus on the interstellar gas. The 0.13-0.4” resolution images of 1.7 mm continuum and 12CO(2-1) emission reveal that the jet only strongly perturbs […]
Following the 5th Netherlands ALMA Science Day, on Tuesday, November 30, 2021, we will host an ALMA Data Reduction Training Day that will follow a hybrid format: all presentations and hands-on activities can be followed online, but we also have physical workspaces available in Leiden for those who wish to make use of these. The […]
Allegro is organizing the 5th Netherlands ALMA Science Day on Monday November 29, 2021, at Leiden Observatory.
It is our pleasure to announce the release of ALminer: ALMA archive mining and visualization toolkit! ALminer is a novel Python-based code that enables users to efficiently query, analyse, and visualize the ALMA Science Archive. Users can programmatically query the archive for positions, target names, or any other keywords in the archive metadata (e.g. proposal […]
The ALMA Cycle 8 2021 Call for Proposals is now open with a submission deadline on April 21, 2021. The Allegro ARC Node would like to invite you to attend a proposal preparation workshop. The aim of this workshop is to assist you in making the most out of ALMA’s new capabilities, getting an overview […]
