IPP Progress Report for the week 2012.10.08 - 2012.10.12

(Up to IPP Progress Reports)

Eugene Magnier

  • photladder paper work: put together a stellar locus fitter and defined the stellar locus segments appropriate for PS1 data. Fitted the stellar locus across the sky in 0.5 deg patches. Finished updating the phot ladder paper based on comments from Paul and Doug.
  • worked with Valeri Mararov (USNO DC) on the possibility of a global astrometry analysis by the USNO / JMAPS team. Selected the PS1 observations of the ICRF QSOs and generated some analysis of the statistics of the absolute astrometry (see http://ps1sc.ifa.hawaii.edu/PS1wiki/index.php/DRAVG_telecon).

Serge Chastel

  • Czar on Wed and Thu
  • Moved ~iqanalysis/analysis/nipp/donuts to /export/ipp064.0/iqanalysis/ to recover 93G on the home partition
  • Warp-Stacks for MOPS
  • Condor

Heather Flewelling

  • liason - answering flag questions and other questions
  • various sa9 work
    • ndetection problems - see wiki
    • investigated -999 vs 0 flux problem - needs help in cmf files
    • discussions about flags
  • science stuff

Mark Huber

  • Czar Monday and Tuesday, misc. babysitting processing and liaison support.
  • MD05 completion of reprocessing to V3 and nightly stacks
  • started looking into y-band W-S diffim photometry offsets and scatter

Bill Sweeney

  • investigated issues with psphotStack radial flux measurements. This task is on going.
  • lots of learning about PSPS

Chris Waters

  • Forced ppStack to output the median stack of the background models. Needs code cleanup and the construction of the background restored stack.
  • Science work/writing on a paper.
  • Attempts to get data from PSPS using command line scripts/SOAP API.
