Amanda Kepley: Developing a General Automasking Algorithm for the ALMA Imaging Pipeline
Abstract: Masking real emission while cleaning interferometer images leads to improved images and enables deeper cleans. In this talk, I will describe an algorithm developed for the ALMA imaging pipeline that automatically masks real emission during the cleaning process. I will show tests of the algorithms on a wide variety of ALMA imaging cases as well as some selected VLA data sets.
