ALMA calibrates and images PI data following the Quality Assurance level 2 or QA2 process. Most (>95%) of ALMA PI data is now processed by the pipeline through calibration and imaging, with the remainder processed manually by ALMA staff (the fraction processed manually was larger in earlier cycles). Pipeline and manual processing both use CASA The easternmost antenna of the Very Long Baseline Array is located on the island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The baseline between St. Croix and the westernmost antenna in Hawaii is nearly 5,000 miles, thus producing an image as though the array were a single antenna with a diameter nearly the diameter of the earth Home » Media Information for requests by the press for interviews, photography, film, and other resources.
