• Minutes of the Herschel FTS data processing telecon of 19th July 2011
    • ------------------------------------------------------------------
Present:
  • Anne-Laure, Dominique, Ed (EP), Gibion, Ivan (IV, host), Peter (PI), Ros, Trevor. The only observer in the meeting was Gibion.

  • Duration: 20 minutes.

  • The agenda was not agreed and not followed as the interest from observers was not representative and people were already familiar with Peter's presentation from the HIPE forum.

  • One of the comments from Peter's presentation of user feedback (Kate Isaak and Naseem Rangwala) was that we should provide better information about options to analyze point source spectra in HIPE.
  • It was also mentioned that, because of the participation of most of the current FTS observers in the bi-weekly FTS workgroup telecons, as well as the close contact of the observers with the FTS User Support Group, most of the user feedback on FTS data processing is already captured and followed by the FTS developers and specialists. Two possible options for user interaction were mentioned: Open Floor meeting for users to raise any question. Topical meetings where the SPIRE FTS team communicates progress on specific aspects of data processing.
  • Gibion raised the question of artefacts in low resolution observations of faint sources. PI mentioned that these artefacts are still under investigation. EP to confirm that follow-up calibration observations of Dark Sky at LR and MR are being scheduled.

  • This might not be the case for all OT1 programmes, very few of which were observed to date. The list of those who have at least one FTS observation is given below:

  • N. Lu (FTS USG member)
  • R. Rubin
  • A. Tielens
  • J. Oliveira
  • F. Herpin
  • J. Green
  • T. Ueta
  • C. Thum
  • E. Peeters
  • M. Audard
  • S. Schnee
  • R. Ivison
  • P. Andre
  • A. Pope

  • ACTION: IV to contact those PIs with OT1 FTS data to ask for their progress and to propose them a dedicated DP telecon with an agenda better adapted to their DP needs.
