Shortcut to ISO Reduction Recipes
These recipes are written by the ISO instrument scientists residing
at IPAC (except for SWS) and can also be found under the IPAC ISO web
pages for the individual instruments.
The recipes are meant to supplement and complement the ISO Data Center
(ESAC) ISO Handbook which includes the individual instrument volumes.
Three of the LWS observing modes are included: the grating modes LWS01
and LWS02, as well as one of the Fabry-Perot modes, LWS04. If source
strength is critical to the analysis, there are separate recipes that
depend on source flux.
The LIA software package includes inspection routines, interactive routines,
and calibration routines to aid the observing in reducing LWS datasets.
These SWS routines have been written by the ISO SWS Support Group at MPI
für extraterrestriche Physik, Garching. The four observing modes of
SWS are covered in these recipes.
A preparation for data reduction summary is provided along with checklists
for the following PHT observing modes:
- P40 staring or chopped observations
- P22 or P37/38/39 staring observations with C200
- P22 raster maps with C200
- P03/P22 chopped observations
- P32 mapping observations

ISAP Home Page
ISAP is the ISO Spectral Analysis Package, a software package developed
specifically to help observers reduce and analyze ISO spectral datasets.
Many of the LWS and SWS recipes involve use of ISAP.
