SWAS IRAF-FITS Archive

NSSDCA ID: ASIR-00070

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1998-12-19 to 2000-06-11

Description

This archive consists of FITS format files containing science observations made during the first eighteen months of the SWAS mission. It will be updated at six-month intervals as subsequent data releases are made. This archive includes all of the science observations that were made, except for the observations of solar system objects, which are available only in the SWAS CLASS archive. The data for a particular source are contained within a single directory whose name corresponds to the source name. Each directory contains one or more FITS files, with each file corresponding to one observed position (i.e., if SWAS has made a 9-point map of a source, there will be 9 individual files). Each FITS file contains up to 6 separate FITS extensions, corresponding to the 6 SWAS sidebands (i.e., CI - O2, H2O - 13CO, and H218O - other). Each FITS extension contains a secondary header that provides information about the spectrum within the extension. The extension header is followed by the total co-added spectrum for the first eighteen months of the mission.
