Expert teams

ALMA is providing many new opportunities for solar physics. The expert teams presented here focus on selected topics with A-F being more technical while G-P address particular scientific topics.

As of November 2015,the teams G-L and P have each composed a strategic document, which outlines prioritized science cases, anticipated outcome, technical requirements and (if applicable) observation strategies for the Cycle 4 and the CSV campaign in 12/2015. The documents have been combined into a white paper and may also serve as a basis for Cycle 4 observing proposals.

The secondary goal is to get an overview of necessary preparations for future observation campaigns (Cycle 5 and beyond) and the post-processing and analysis of ALMA data.

The exchange of useful information and cross-team collaborations are organized through activities that involve the whole SSALMONetwork, incl. regular team reports and workshops.

Current status

  • March 2015: Tests with team G.
  • June 2015: All teams (except for team N) are active.
  • August 2015: Team coordinators are being selected. Work on the strategic documents has begun.
  • November 2015: All strategic team documents are finished and are combined into a SSALMON white paper for Cycle 4.
