Return to directory of Todd's CASA extensions

Determines the effective resolution of a channel in an ALMA spw. This function was designed primarily for pre-Cycle 3 data, because Cycle 3 onward has the correct value written into the ASDM. See also effectiveResolution and effectiveResolutionASDM.


au.surmiseEffectiveResolution(vis, spw, window='hanning', kms=False)
  • value in Hz, unless kms=True


CASA <58>: au.surmiseEffectiveResolution('',0)
Since this is Cycle 3 data, you should instead use au.effectiveResolution. But hopefully the result will be the same.
  Out[58]: 3904296.875
CASA <59>: au.effectiveResolution('',0)
  Out[59]: 3904296.875
