CALIBRATE_SCUBA2_DATA

Calibrate SCUBA-2 data

Description:

Calibrate SCUBA-2 data with a given or default FCF. The units of the input data are checked and the appropriate default FCF chosen. The output files have a suffix of _cal.

This recipe may be used to convert between different (known) calibration types, e.g., from mJy/arcsec$\ast$$\ast$2 to mJy/beam and vice versa.

Notes:

• The input data must not have the same units as the desired calibration.

• All input data will have the same calibration applied.

• The FCF FITS header will be updated with the value used to calibrate the data. The units will be in the comment.

Available Parameters :

FCF
FCF to use to calculate data. The same value is used for all files. The standard SCUBA-2 FCF will be used if not given.
FCF_CALTYPE
FCF type for determining the output units. May be BEAM (default) or ARCSEC

None.

Output Files

• Creates an output file for each calibrated input file with suffix _cal.
