These data sets and log files were generated on a best effort
basis using the
VLA pipeline in AIPS.
Please realize that errors can be made in such an automated
process. If you encounter a problem with any of these files or have a
question regarding the process or their use in your research, please
us know and we will do our best to improve this service for you
and everyone else using your input.
Thank you in advance!
The rows and columns below describe the following:
- The first (colored, dated) row, first column lists the
date of the observation run for this project; there may be many
more than one observing run (e.g., for deeper integrations, different
array configurations and/or a monitoring project). Furthermore, there
are links to some text files that track the download process of this
observing run. The General data log in the second column shows
the files downloaded from the archive and the files created for the
processing (see below) and their processing information.
Raw data VLA archive files are downloaded to a local disk and loaded
into AIPS with FILLM. FILLM produces an AIPS readable file for
each different frequency band, and we also separate them into
different bands if the IF pairs are not contiguous. If there is more
than one AIPS file in the end, MOVE moves the extra files each
to a unique AIPS number, so that the processing can always be done in
a known and fixed way, which simplifies the process. The files called
run and log, respectively, are the c-shell scripts to
invoke the AIPS tasks FILLM (third column) and, if there was more than
one file created by FILLM or when splitting IFs, MOVE (last column),
and the AIPS output messages from them.
- All next (non-colored, non dated) rows lists all the
observed frequencies for that (above mentioned) observing run (column
two), with their calibrated multi-source UV data
(uvfits) files and separate calibration tables (clfits,
in case you've already downloaded the raw data VLA archive files) in
column three. The fourth column gives you access to the c-shell
run script and the AIPS output messages log file.
The table listing should be sorted according to increasing date
without an attempt to sort the frequencies per observing run
(generally the frequency sorting is according to order of observing
during that day).
