Status of ALMA Cycle 1 and 2

Published: 25 Feb 2014

ALMA Cycle 1 science observations continued until 28 January 2014 and started again during the third week of February. Seven periods of observations of about 100 hours each have been executed, and about 35% of the estimated number of observation executions needed for Cycle 1 have been completed. All observed data are under analysis or have been delivered to scientists.

A report on Cycle 1 observing progress will be issued on the ALMA Science Portal in March.

Cycle 2 science assessment is ongoing and technical feasibility is currently taking place in Santiago, leading toward the 10-15 March 2014 proposal reviews in Ontario, Canada. PIs will be notified in April of the outcome of the proposal review process.
