The main diskdrives for my data are /data1/rft/ and /data2/rft/ currently located on lnxb. These will soon be moved by David to another location, and if I remember to update this page when that is done, then I will amend this page accordingly.
The important content of the directories are: /data1/rft/legacy/ and /data2/rft/legacy . These contain quite a lot of work that I have done on the XMM Legacy LP (now called REXCESS). I'll briefly describe the directory structure that I use for one of these clusters so that it is easy to navigate around. Incidentally, the supercluster Zw2341+0000, is in a directory on /data1/rft/legacy/supclus/ even though it is not part of the REXCESS project, but I put it there for convenience as my startup scripts would be able to find the appropriate blank-sky background events lists.
Before I go into more detail for a specific cluster, there are quite a few other directories in /data1/rft/legacy/
The rest of the directories contain old data, so I'm not gonna bother to list them all here.
For a specific cluster the directory stucture looks as follows:
- radial temperature and metallicity data.
- radial temperature profiles that were published in my thesis for a large subsample of the REXCESS clusters.
- blank-sky events lists for each camera in all the different modes.
- corresponding exposure maps
- events corresponding to exposures taken with the filter wheel closed.
- an updated version of the 'deprojected' directory. This contains lots of .RData files created using Al's program for deprojection, with the T, Z, norm data overwritten with values from the simultaneous deprojection approach. The plots/ and plots/for/ directories within contain all the plots used for my thesis along with the appropriate code on how to create them from the .RData files.
- Gabriel's temperature profiles using his new method. The spec/ within contains all his spectra, with the appropriate model if needed. I don't think that these have the rmf and arf files attached, but if I have extracted them in the same annular regions then those can be used. To date, I have only done this for 5 of the clusters (those with /newdata directories), so the remaining arf/rmf files will have to be extracted or obtained if you want to do data analysis on these clusters.
- Initial lightcurves for a handful of the REXCESS clusters.
- Surface brightness profiles
- ODF - original data files.
- PPS - pipeline processed data at the time of observation.
- work - directory where I did all my work.
Linked events lists are the reprocessed events from each camera with corresponding blank-sky field. Each directory should contain a log file (something like log.txt) which explains the processes that have gone into creating al the visible files.
- cleaning - where I did all my flare cleaning
- emchain/epchain - running the chains to extract events for each camera
- mosaic1 - mosaic of all 3 cameras together
- profiles - where I extract my spectra for each method
- radial - where I extract my surface brigthness profiles
- sources - where the point sources are identified
In some cases, I have been given cleaned events files from Gabriel Pratt, and these have appeared in a new directory, for example /data1/rft/legacy/0547_3152/work/newdata/
The directory structure here is as follows:
The files pipe.csh and pipe2.csh do pretty much all the data processing in this directory.
- annspecmod - the spectral model used to fit the residual spectrum.
- bkg - the blank-sky background events lists for that cluster.
- radial - radial temperature profiles with different models.
- regions - a list of annular regions with which to extract spectra.
- residuals - extraction of the residual spectra and model fitting it.
- src - region files for source-free region on detector
- src_clean - cleaned events lists for src and bg events lists. These are weighted, normalised by the exposure maps and the background is normalised by the ratio of high energy count rate in an external region.
