SC2CLEAN

Clean SCUBA-2 time-series data

Description:

This command is a stand-alone task for cleaning SCUBA-2 time-series data. Cleaning operations include:

All the above operations can be performed on the dark squid data. These take the same parameters used for cleaning the primary bolometer data but use the " cleandk" namespace. For example, " dcthresh" would become " cleandk.dcthresh" .

Parameters:

BBM = NDF (Read)
Group of files to be used as bad bolometer masks. Each data file specified with the IN parameter will be masked. The corresponding previous mask for a subarray will be used. If there is no previous mask the closest following will be used. It is not an error for no mask to match. A NULL parameter indicates no mask files to be supplied. [!]
COM = NDF (Write)
If COMPREPROCESS is set in the configuration file, the common mode is calculated and removed from the bolometer data. The COM adam parameter can then be used to specify an NDF to store the common mode. See also GAI. [!]
CONFIG = GROUP (Read)
Specifies values for the cleaning parameters. If the string " def" (case-insensitive) or a null (!) value is supplied, a set of default configuration parameter values will be used.

The supplied value should be either a comma-separated list of strings or the name of a text file preceded by an up-arrow character "^" , containing one or more comma-separated lists of strings. Each string is either a " keyword=value" setting, or the name of a text file preceded by an up-arrow character " ^" . Such text files should contain further comma-separated lists which will be read and interpreted in the same manner (any blank lines or lines beginning with " #" are ignored). Within a text file, newlines can be used as delimiters, as well as commas. Settings are applied in the order in which they occur within the list, with later settings over-riding any earlier settings given for the same keyword.

Each individual setting should be of the form:

<keyword >= <value >

The available parameters are identical to the cleaning parameters used by the iterative map-maker (method=ITER) and the available parameters are listed in the " Configuration Parameters" appendix of SUN/258. Default values will be used for any unspecified parameters. Assigning the value " <def >" (case insensitive) to a keyword has the effect of resetting it to its default value. Options available to the map-maker but not understood by SC2CLEAN will be ignored. Parameters not understood will trigger an error. Use the " cleandk." namespace for configuring cleaning parameters for the dark squids. [current value]

FLAT = _LOGICAL (Read)
If set ensure data are flatfielded. If not set do not scale the data in any way (but convert to DOUBLE). [TRUE]
FLATMETH = _CHAR (Read)
Method to use to calculate the flatfield solution. Options are POLYNOMIAL and TABLE. Polynomial fits a polynomial to the measured signal. Table uses an interpolation scheme between the measurements to determine the power. [POLYNOMIAL]
FLATORDER = _INTEGER (Read)
The order of polynomial to use when choosing POLYNOMIAL method. [1]
FLATSNR = _DOUBLE (Read)
Signal-to-noise ratio threshold to use when filtering the responsivity data to determine valid bolometers for the flatfield. [3.0]
FLATUSENEXT = _LOGICAL (Read)
If true the previous and following flatfield will be used to determine the overall flatfield to apply to a sequence. If false only the previous flatfield will be used. A null default will use both flatfields for data when we did not heater track at the end, and will use a single flatfield when we did heater track. The parameter value is not sticky and will revert to the default unless explicitly over-ridden. [!]
GAI = NDF (Write)
If COMPREPROCESS is set in the configuration file, the common mode is calculated and removed from the bolometer data. The GAI adam parameter can then be used to specify an NDF to store the gain/offset/correlation coefficients of the common-mode template for each bolometer. See also COM. [!]
IN = NDF (Read)
Input files to be cleaned
MAXLEN = _DOUBLE (Read)
Maximum length (in seconds) for concatenated file. The default is to use all data if possible (subject to available memory). [!]
MSG_FILTER = _CHAR (Read)
Control the verbosity of the application. Values can be NONE (no messages), QUIET (minimal messages), NORMAL, VERBOSE, DEBUG or ALL. [NORMAL]
OUT = NDF (Write)
Output file(s).
OUTFILES = LITERAL (Write)
The name of text file to create, in which to put the names of all the output NDFs created by this application (one per line). If a null (!) value is supplied no file is created. [!]
PADEND = _INTEGER (Read)
Number of samples to pad at end. Default is no padding. [!]
PADSTART = _INTEGER (Read)
Number of samples to pad at start. Default is no padding. [!]
RESIST = GROUP (Read)
A group expression containing the resistor settings for each bolometer. Usually specified as a text file using " ^" syntax. An example can be found in $STARLINK_DIR/share/smurf/resist.cfg [$STARLINK_DIR/share/smurf/resist.cfg]
RESPMASK = _LOGICAL (Read)
If true, responsivity data will be used to mask bolometer data when calculating the flatfield. [TRUE]
USEDARKS = _LOGICAL (Read)
Use darks to mask data. [TRUE]
