BATSEDAILY - CGRO/BATSE Daily Data
cont_TJD_fits 8 batse detectors, 2.048s resolution/16 energy channels discla_TJD.fits 8 batse detectors, 1.024s resolution/ 4 energy channelswhere TJD is the Truncated Julian Date number defined by:
TJD = JD - 2,440,000.5 = MJD - 40,000Thus, the BATSE daily data for 1995-05-03 which corresponds to TJD = 9840 are in files named cont_09840.fits and discla_09840.fits. In the W3Browse version of this database these data products can be directly extracted, but not in the BROWSE version. In the latter case the user must use anonymous FTP or its Web equivalent to download the files; notice that the directory structure is based on the TJD number, so that the above-mentioned two files can be found at ftp://cossc.gsfc.nasa.gov/compton/data/batse/daily/09001_10000/09801_09900/dds09840/ Further information about these data products should be addressed to email@example.com.
A unique observation ID for every entry constructed by prefixing the string 'B.DAILY_' in front of the day number or TJD.
The TJD day number of the observation defined by:
TJD = JD - 2,440,000.5 = MJD - 40,000
The start time of the BATSE daily data.
The stop time of the BATSE daily data.
