ROSDISTRIB: Help

ROSDISTRIB - ROSAT Public Archive List

Overview

The ROSDISTRIB database contains the list of US and German ROSAT observations for which REV0 data have been distributed to the PI, including those data sets which have become available to the public. The ROSDISTRIB database is updated weekly, as new datasets are distributed to PI's and others are released for public use.

For each observation listed in ROSDISTRIB, the instrument used, processing site, and target name and coordinates are given, as well as the ROSAT observation request number (ROR), actual and requested exposure times, date the observation took place, date data were distributed to the PI, date data will become public, and more.
