RACS Busy Week
The Rapid ASKAP Continuum Survey (RACS) was first conducted at the low-frequency end of ASKAP's 700--1800 MHz band. This has been complemented by similar surveys in the mid-band and high-band. The higher frequencies yield higher anngular resolution images and are helping to build a Global Sky Model that will result in improvements to data processing in the future. A RACS Busy Week is being held this week to bring together those working on these data sets to discuss issues including flux density calibration, beam-shape measurements, positional astrometry, dealing with artefacts arising from the brightest sources, radio-frequency interference, file-naming conventions and plans for releasing the mid- and high-band surveys once quality checks have been completed.
