NEW NEW NEW Latest updates -- 11 July 2016 NEW NEW NEW
  • HIPE 14.2 has been released !
  • The first version of the HIFI handbook is now available
 
  • Check the important calibration updates and associated improvements expected in the HIPE 14.0.1 and upcoming 14.1 reprocessed data - this includes in particular updated sideband gain ratio in bands 1 to 4
  • The HIFI products now come with a frequency-dependent intensity calibration uncertainty budget
  • Channel flags for spurs are now populated in all HIFI observations (this was limited to spectral scan up to HIPE 13)
  • Re-organisation of the HIFI quality flags for a better assessement of issues being relevant or not to the end products

Which data would most benefit from being reprocessed in HIPE 14.1 ?

  • Isolated problematic processing with 14.1
    • A dozen of observations was not properly processed in 14.1 and 14.0.1. The list of those obsids is: 1342197147, 1342210032, 1342216806, 1342219255, 1342219454, 134230216, 1342245299, 1342246507, 1342245997, 1342250406, 1342250721, 1342265972, 1342263227. These observations will be reprocessed correctly with 14.2 - meanwhile, it is possible to use the HIPE 13 products, bearing in mind that all other improvements introduced in the 14.x products will not yet be featured in those products

If your data have been processed with HIPE 14.0.1
 
  • Spectra mean and median statistical numbers
    • The HIFI 14.0.1 products suffered from a minor bug leading to a wrong computation of the mean and median spectra values (i.e. a measure of the DSB continuum to first order). This has been repaied in 14.1

  • Intensity calibration uncertainty
    • HIPE 14 introduces a new product providing an estimated breakdown of the intensity calibration uncertainty. The uncertainties are given separately for each component, as well as in a quadratic sum fashion for all statistically independent elements. This sum applies to the calibration of data in the Ta* scale. Further systematic and random error apply for data converted into different intensity scales (e.g. Tmb or Jy). See further details in section 9 of the DRG.
