Requesting calibrated data in Europe

from 1 October 2019 onwards

By popular demand, the EU ARC has implemented a service which permits ALMA users to
request the calibrated data for a given dataset (Member Obs Unit Set, MOUS) to be
made available for download. The service is open both for ALMA PIs or Delegees with
proprietary ALMA data and for archival users wanting to use datasets for which the
proprietary time has expired.

If you have identified a particular MOUS that you want to investigate, please file
a normal Helpdesk ticket in the department “Archive and Data Retrieval (EU)” and
select the “Data request” sub-category.

In the body of the text always specify the project code (e.g. 2015.1.09999.S, one per ticket)
and MOUS UID(s) (e.g. uid___A001_X340_X6 or uid://A001/X340/X6). You can
enumerate up to 10 MOUSs in your request.

The creation and staging will be done one MOUS at a time and you will be notified
*by separate email for each MOUS* as to where you can download the tarred MS(s).
Depending on the workload on the EU ARC systems, it may take days before your
dataset is ready for you.

Your download link will remain valid for 28 days, which means that you have 28 days from the time
of the notification email to download the data.

The service will become available on 1 October 2019.
