To coadd selected Copernicus scans.
file (req) (i) (0) (s)
Name of file containing the Copernicus scans
scan (req) (i) (1) (i)
Vector containing the scan numbers to be coadded
wave (opt) (o) (1) (f)
Wavelengths for coadded spectrum
counts (opt) (o) (1) (f)
Counts for coadded spectrum
nys (opt) (o) (1) (i)
Number of scans coadded per datum
scatter (opt) (o) (1) (f)
Scatter per datum
back (opt) (o) (1) (i)
out (key) (i)
Name of output file
bkgnd (key) (i)
Background subtraction option. 0=no background, 1=background
from original FITS table (file), 2=background interpolated from
a table. Default is 1.
tempcor (key) (i)
If set, a temperature correction will be performed.
batch (key) (i)
If set, no plots will appear on the screen and the user will
not be prompted or allowed to reject portions of scans. A
postscript file of the results will be generated. Without
this keyword, the user has the option of writing a postscript
file after viewing the plot on the screen.
resltn (key) (i)
Resolution of output wavelengths. Defaults for each tube are:
u1: .01, v1: .02, u2: .1, v2: .2, v3: .1 (angstroms)
NOTE: Velocity corrections not currently applied. Ignore VRAD and VLSR.
vrad (key) (i) (0)
Radial velocity. If not given, the value in the FITS header
will be used.
vlsr (key) (i) (0)
Velocity, local standard of rest. If not given, the value in
the FITS header will be used.
inspect (key) (i) (0) (i)
If set, the plots of each scan will be displayed and the user
may reject all or part of that scan, as desired.
u3scan (key) (i) (1) (i)
U3 scans corresponding to U1 scans to be stacked. They'll be
overplotted (scaled) in INSPECT mode so the user can see if there
were any glitches or not.
Stack scans 659, 664, 672, and 677 from file C002.PEP, return vectors
to the user, and write results to file TEST.FIT:
Same as above, but use backgrounds from the table and not the raw file:
iuefhrd Reads FITS header of input file
iue3drd Reads data from FITS file
ifitswrt Writes output FITS file
setwgt Allows user to interactively discard scans or regions thereof
swtest Data rejection and correction subroutine (widgets)
within Range testing
tabinv Locates index of items in a vector
iueterp Interpolates data to new wavelength grid
nsplot Stacked plot of counts, nys, sigma vs wavelengths
addpar Adds items to FITS header
dateconv converts date to fits format (if output file requested)
*SYSTEM VARIABLES USED:
Input FITS file containing original data
Output FITS file containing stacked data if user selects that option
backs.fit - Table of backgrounds in FITS primary array file
tempcor.dat - Temperature data in ASCII format (if user selects
The user must have selected the scans to coadd ahead of time.
If the temperature or background tables need to be read, they
are read. Then the scalar fields for each scan are read. The
final wavelength vector is constructed. Then the scans are read
and any desired corrections (temperature or background) are applied.
The data for each scan is saved, so that a sigma vector (a measure
of the deviance from the coadded spectrum) can be calculated. The
data are plotted, and, if desired, a FITS file containing the results
is written. Note that the plot may be directed to a postscript file.
