SOHO/CDS CDS Users’ Meeting, Sep 2005 Dr Peter Young, CCLRC/RAL Calibration uncertainties For large counts, calibration uncertainties dominate over photon statistic errorsFor large counts, calibration uncertainties dominate over photon statistic errors Difference between relative and absolute calibration uncertainties (e.g., line ratios vs. DEM)Difference between relative and absolute calibration uncertainties (e.g., line ratios vs. DEM) Relative uncertainty is λ dependent and varies from 12 to 29%Relative uncertainty is λ dependent and varies from 12 to 29% For absolute uncertainty, additional contribution of 13%For absolute uncertainty, additional contribution of 13% See Sect. 3.3 of Lanzafame et al.

SOHO/CDS CDS Users’ Meeting, Sep 2005 Dr Peter Young, CCLRC/RAL Fill or not to fill? The cosmic ray routines allow two options for dealing with CRsThe cosmic ray routines allow two options for dealing with CRs 1.fill with median value of surrounding pixels 2.flag as missing data The latter is best option for preserving statisticsThe latter is best option for preserving statistics

Are there any new IDL routines that you’d like to see?Are there any new IDL routines that you’d like to see? Routines can be added to CDS branch of SolarsoftRoutines can be added to CDS branch of Solarsoft Requirements:Requirements: –provide header in standard format –check that obvious errors are caught
