European Southern Observatory

The ALMA Science Archive

February 5

12:10PM, Room 230, NRAO, Edgemont Road


In full science, ALMA will take in raw data at a rate of 200TB/yr and produce fully-reduced science-grade products from them. Creating a Science Archive that allows archival researchers to discover and retrieve these helps to maximize the scientific return of the observatory. We present the design and status of the ALMA Science Archive and place these efforts into a larger context.
