HIPE and data reduction documentation

Changed:

  • HIPE (Herschel Interactive Processing Environment) is the tool used to inspect, reduce, and analyse Herschel data. The latest User Release HCSS (Herschel common science system) version that you should use for reducing PACS data is HIPE v12.0 It can be downloaded from: http://herschel.esac.esa.int/HIPE_download.shtml. In the CIB (continuous integration build) this version corresponds to Track 12, build 2603. (The CIB is the continuously bug-fixed/upgraded/improved version of HIPE, which every X months becomes a stable User Release. The CIB has the latest software in it, but it will not be bug-free.)

  • Within HIPE you can access all the PACS data reduction documentation and the general HCSS and HIPE user documentation for Track 12. The documentation provided via HIPE opens in a web browser, but for those of you who prefer PDF, we include the PACS Data Reduction Guides as PDF files here (note that within the standalone pdf versions, external links will not work):

    • The Scripting Guide: the language of HIPE is 'HIPE's version of jython', and it is a full scripting environment in which you can manipulate data, do mathematics, and view data in various ways. The 'SG' is a guide to scripting in HIPE. It is not necessary, but it does help, if you are already comfortable with scripting before embarking on scripting in HIPE.
    • Reference manuals. For most of the tasks that you can run in HIPE the description of what they do and listings of all the parameters can be found in the 'User's Reference Manual'. To learn more about the various HIPE product classes you can read the JAVA docs (APIs) a.k.a. the 'Developer's Reference Manual'. These tell you e.g. how to manipulate spectra and images directly by querying on the product, rather than using a pre-provided task.

  • PACS Spectrometer performance and calibration: The PACS Spectrometer Calibration Document v2.4 (16-June-2011) provides details on the calibration accuracy and the necessary information to optimally interpret PACS spectroscopy observations. (Please note, this document refers to the calibration status and performance of pipeline version v8.0. An update compatible with HIPE v12.0 release will be provided soon.) This includes:

    • the beam efficiencies and the PACS integral field footprint
    • spectral leakages and ghosts
