The European ARC Network invites users to an online training on polarisation observations with ALMA. The session will be held on Thursday June 24, 2021, 11:00 CEST [Zoom link]. In this training session, participants will learn about ALMA’s polarisation capabilities and data products available in the archive. In particular, instructions on how to inspect the diagnostic information on data calibration and how to produce polarisation images will be given.

Some preparations will be needed to follow this tutorial in full. Before the session, attendees will be requested to download a dataset and install a compatible CASA version. Instructions will be made available in the  Science Portal at least a week in advance. Presentation slides will be made available in the Science Portal the day before the session. 

The duration of this training session will be about one hour and will include an interactive Q&A session. For questions do not hesitate to contact the Nordic ARC node at contact@nordic-alma.se.

Note: The tutors' presentation will be recorded and an edited version of the recording will be posted in the Science Portal after the session. The interactive Q&A will not be recorded.
