PLANCK Data Stream Merge

  • The PLANCK data stream merge is the responsibility of the DPC (Data Processing Center) and is composed of several parts.
  • The bulk of these data merge tasks are most appropriate for computer science and data handling specialists. The primary points of interactions with the LFI science team is in defining what kinds of data are needed for the science data streams and anything siphoned off for further quick-look, real-time, monitoring, and quality checking and any special investigations of performance. It is likely that the data volume is sufficiently large that the data will be separated into relevant streams by special software for long term trending and investigations, espeically those that need the merged data stream.
