7.2. Spectroscopy processing levels and data products

There is a Herschel-wide convention on processing levels of the different instruments. There are different classes of products created at the Level 0, 0.5, 1 and 2 of the pipeline. A more detailed product description is given in the PACS Data Reduction Guide (PDRG) and also the Herschel Products Definitions Document (HPDD), both of which are available via the HIPE help. Here we give you a summary of these information. For all the products described here the red and blue ranges are separate products. They are identified by an R or a B at the end of the product name. The product names start with HPS, which stands for Herschel Pacs Spectroscopy.
