Applying Pipeline Continuum Subtraction

Starting in Cycle 5, ALMA pipeline-calibrated data will be delivered with a calibration table which describes the continuum subtraction the pipeline did. This CASA Guide describes how to apply this pipeline-determined continuum subtraction. The main benefit of using this pre-determined subtractionis that it will save time compared to repeating the hif_uvcontfit() and hif_uvcontsub() steps as described in XYZPQ. If you wish to revise the continuum subtraction you should instead use the steps described in IWIDJ.

This is a draft page describing how PI's can make use of the UVCONT table that is delivered with their data to uv subtract the data, saving time over doing the uvcont fitting themselves.

Here is a bulleted list:
