SWAS 6th Release Data
The sixth SWAS public data release consists of a complete set of SWAS data from mission day 0049 (the first day of usable science data) to mission day 1144. Mission day 0001 is defined as November 01, 1998.
The sixth distribution is in two formats: a FITS-format data archive, sorted by target; and a Class-format data archive, also sorted by target. A JPEG-format "5-panel plot" showing a sample grand co-add for the nominal center position (offsets of 0'', 0'' in RA and Dec) of the target, is also available. (For a few targets, a non-zero offset position was used instead since little data currently exists at the nominal center position as listed in the working SWAS source catalog.)
The FITS-format archive contains subdirectories for each target observed by SWAS. For targets with pointings at multiple positions, there is a separate FITS file for each position. The individual FITS files represent the grand co-add of all spectra for each line taken at that position.
For the sixth public release, the following targets have been observed by SWAS for the first time:
The following targets have additional data available in the sixth public release:
