Description

Calibration model parameters are given in the 10 Calibration Model Solution files. Errors associated with the calibration model are given in the 16 Calibration Error Terms files. Four Model Selection Errors files give estimates of the possible systematic errors caused by the choice of destriper model functions at low spectral resolution. For a full discussion of the Calibration Model Solution data, see the FIRAS Explanatory Supplement (especially subsection 5.6 ) . FITS headers are listed in the FIRAS Explanatory Supplement Appendix G.
