ALMA Memo #338
The Best Sites for the Compact ALMA Configuration

Bryan Butler, Simon Radford, and Angel Otarola
December 04, 2000

We present considerations involved in finding the best location for the compact (maximum antenna separation <~ 200 m) ALMA configuration on the science preserve. Several candidate locations for the compact configuration are then suggested. Note that we distinguish here between the compact ALMA configuration and the so-called ``Atacama Compact Array'' (or ACA) which is a separate collection of smaller antennas. We do not consider the placement of the ACA in this memo.
