International Coordination Meeting
10-11 July 2002
The Japan/US/UK Yohkoh mission has been an
unprecedented scientific success. It is the goal
of the Yohkoh Galileo Project to create an archive
of Yohkoh data, processed results, and calibration
and analysis information of sufficient quality so as
to make these results useful for science and
scientists in perpetuity. Experts should no longer
be required to guide others in the use of the data.
In early 2002, after it was certain that Yohkoh could not
be recovered, the MSU and LMSAL teams (with
support and cooperation of the MSSL team) wrote
a so-called “white paper” entitled
Plan for Yohkoh/SXT Mission Completion
L. Acton, J. Lemen 15-Mar-02
On the basis of this proposal NASA has agreed to permit
use of already authorized Yohkoh/SXT funds for this
archival work -- to be completed by 30 September 2003.
Reformatted raw Yohkoh data.
Instrumental or (BCS) photon units.
All calibrations and corrections applied.
FITS format with exhaustive header info.
No additional data base required to use these
E.g., SXT composite images, movies, flare list.
The objective of this book is to create a permanent record of:
1. A selection of Yohkoh science.
2. Everything needed to understand and analyze the data.
The book should explain how the digital signals are related to incoming photons, what corrections have been applied, and the experimental uncertainty of the result.
