We present the calibration between the dust continuum luminosity and interstellar gas content obtained from the Valparaiso ALMA Line Emission Survey (VALES) sample of 67 main-sequence star-forming galaxies at 0.02 < z < 0.35. We use CO(1–0) observations from the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array to trace the molecular gas mass, MH2, and estimate the rest-frame monochromatic luminosity at 850 µm, Lν850, by extrapolating the dust continuum from MAGPHYS modelling of the far-ultraviolet…
