"data.zip" contains fits files of synthetic ALMA Band 7 continuum observations [mJy/beam].

"image.gallery.zip" contains an image gallery (and quicklook movies) of disk images [mJy/beam] and residual maps [S/N] -- a ready-made visualization of everything in data.zip.

loose "*.mp4" files are also present in "image.gallery.zip".


The following model permutations are available:


1. Face-on disks:

x2 equation of state (isothermal, adiabatic with beta=10)

x3 planet mass (0.3, 1.0 and 3.0 thermal masses)

x4 disk optical depth (0.1, 0.3, 1.0, 3.0 initial tau at Rp)

x6 requested observing sensitivity (10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 uJy/beam)

x3 antenna configuration pairs (C43-4 + C43-7, C43-5 + C43-8, C43-6 + C43-9)

= 432 synthetic ALMA Band 7 continuum images

(+24 model dust continuum emission maps that served as input [Jy/arcsec2])


2. Inclined disks:

x1 equation of state (adiabatic with beta=10)

x1 planet mass (1.0 thermal masses)

x4 disk optical depth (0.1, 0.3, 1.0, 3.0 initial tau at Rp)

x3 disk inclinations (30, 50 and 70 degrees)

x2 planet position angle (on major axis, on minor axis)

x6 requested observing sensitivity (10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 uJy/beam)

x1 antenna configuration pairs (C43-5 + C43-8)

= 144 synthetic ALMA Band 7 continuum images
