The 2019 CASS Radio School
by Chenoa Tremblay
The CSIRO Radio Astronomy School is a long standing traditional way of assisting PhD students, early career researchers and hobbyists in getting over the initial hurdles of working with radio astronomy data. Over the week of 30 September to 4 October 2019, national and international astronomers provided 26 lectures and 7 tutorials at the site of the Australian Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) in Narrabri, NSW. Participants were also given tours of the 22 metre dishes on site, which in the era of most astronomy done on a computer and remote observing, is important to allow connection to the instruments. The lectures covered a mix of the fundamentals, data challenges, and science we do in the radio part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The tutorials allowed students to not only learn how to process radio astronomy data but also how to observe using ATCA and what considerations are made when handling large volumes of data.
