SMURF – the Sub-Millimetre User Reduction Facility
The Sub-Millimetre User Reduction Facility (Smurf) is a software package for initial reduction of data produced by the ACSIS correlator and the SCUBA-2 bolometer array on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT). This document describes the Smurf tasks used to process raw ACSIS data into data cubes, and raw SCUBA-2 data into images. These low-level tasks are used within automated Orac-dr pipelines (documented elsewhere) that produce calibrated data products. This document is intended for users who wish to run the low-level tasks themselves, to explore possibilities not provided by the automated pipelines.
