Known issues

  • 2018 October
    • The display of the file number and size on the Request Handler was corrected
    • Band 5 observations are now classified correctly as Band 5 even if they are at the very edge of the band
    • auxiliary files are now selected for download per default
    • the list of sources displayed on the RH is now unique
  • 2018 August
    • Files from Cycle 5 onwards can be downloaded either in the usual tar-files or individually directly from the ALMA Request Handler. Click on the small black triangles in front of the tar-file names to open up the file contents and use either the "Save As ..." of your browser or select the files for download with the script.
    • The 'frequency support' column now also contains the line-sensitivities of the spectral windows at native resolution and at 10km/s.
    • The QA2 status information in the result list has been corrected
  • 2018 June
    • improved calculation of values (e.g. sensitivities) for ObsUnitSets that have some of their data declared QA0 SemiPass.
    • Science Verification data (SV) searchable in the Query Interface (downloads still need to be done through the SV data page).
    • The products for Cycle 5+ data have been split into two tar files: the tar file containing the FITS files as well as an auxiliary tar-file with the remainder of the products. Users only interested in the weblog or QA2 report or in recomputing the calibrated measurement sets do not have to download the FITS products and users who are only interested in the FITS products do not have to download the auxiliary files.
    • Improved download experience: the download script automatically retries if there are network glitches
  • that you can search for public but not yet published data? Put '0' into the 'Publication count' field and select the 'public data only' checkbox like so.
  • that queries and downloads can be done also from a script with astroquery?
  • Cycle 5+ files can now be downloaded individually?
  • that as a PIs you can give other registered ALMA users access to your proprietary data by logging into the Science Portal and then in the Profile section selecting the 'Project delegation' tab?
  • that in addition to the ALMA Science Archive Manual we provide answers to Frequently Asked Questions?
  • that authors who make use of ALMA data in their publications must place the ALMA ackowledgement statement into their publications?
  • the headings for two columns of the frequency_support tooltip are missing (line sensitivities at 10kms and at native resolution)
  • some column headings do not show the column's units
  • the links to the list of the publications related to an observation do not work if a source-name query was performed. Users need to query for the project code instead.
