Atvars Nikolajevs “Introduction to LOFAR data processing

During this seminar the main aim is to get familiar with basics of radio astronomy, interferometry, Low-Frequency Array technology (LOFAR), LOFAR long-baseline (LB) calibrator survey and procedures, and data processing software Astronomical Image Processing System (AIPS). Practical work shows the main steps required to review LOFAR LB data and prepare it for imaging using AIPS.
