"Calibration Product Review for the GHRS in Early Cycle 4"  11/94

Stephen J. Hulbert, Lisa E. Sherbert, David R. Soderblom, and Claus Leitherer

Abstract excerpted from the report:

The pipeline reduction program, calhrs, determines how to calibrate a particular
dataset by checking "switches" that are set to PERFORM or OMIT and by access-
ing various calibration reference files. These reference files are
summarized in GHRS Calibration Reference Files and Tables, by S.J. Hulbert
and L.E. Sherbert, the latest version of which is dated 11 July 1994 and
is available on STEIS as a PostScript document. That document is included
in this one, with additional explanatory comments. A brief review of the
calibration process and control switches is also included here. Additional
information on the usage of calhrs and the reference files may be found in
HST Data Handbook, issued in February, 1994.

This document contains a listing of all GHRS Reference Files and Tables that are
presently available in the Calibration Data Base System (CDBS). The tables
herein are intended to provide a history of the differences among the files and
tables which are used by Post Observational Data Processing System (PODPS) to
calibrate GHRS data. This Report provides a description of the files and their
usage as of 30 September 1994, for the convienence of Cycle 4 HST users.
