Tutorials

  • An introduction to Radio Interferometry, in an MWA context (John Morgan) video slides
  • The MWA 128T system (John Morgan) video slides
  • Supercomputing at the Pawsey Centre (Paul Hancock) videoslides (needs updating for 2018)
  • Widefield imaging (Natasha Hurley-Walker) video slides
  • (This is a good point to read through the workshop slides and try following along.)
  • Image projections and source-finding (Paul Hancock) video slides
  • Flagging, sidelobes, weighting, and self-cal (Natasha Hurley-Walker) video (see workshop slides)
  • Scheduling (John Morgan) video slides
  • Database tools (John Morgan) video slides
  • Mosaicking (Natasha Hurley-Walker) video slides
  • Flux calibration (Natasha Hurley-Walker) video slides
  • Position / direction-dependent calibration (Natasha Hurley-Walker) videoslides
  • There are workshop slides (Natasha Hurley-Walker) for working through the example scripts, which are checked in to MWA_Tools/mwadr_examples/ . Due to interactive nature of the workshop, there are no videos associated with these slides, but they are hopefully self-descriptive enough to follow if you have an account on Galaxy. There is also a short gallery of "funnies" (Natasha Hurley-Walker) i.e. images with deleterious effects in them, which may help people diagnose issues with their data. If you are really keen, the unedited videos of day one and day two of the second DR workshop are also available.

  • CASA: the Common Astronomy Software Applications package, for post-processing radio astronomy data. The package can process both interferometric and single dish data. The CASA infrastructure consists of a set of C++ tools bundled together under an iPython interface as data reduction tasks. This structure provides flexibility to process the data via task interface or as a python script. In addition to the data reduction tasks, many post-processing tools are available for even more flexibility and special purpose reduction needs. 
  • NRAO Summer Synthesis Imaging 2014 talks
  • ADS PDFs of the "white book" (Synthesis Imaging in Radio Astronomy II)
