2020-07-07 hst_0800.pmap operational These files were generated following the ACS WFC anneal on Jun 26, 2020, and should be used to calibrate ACS WFC observations taken between May 29, 2020 and Jun 26, 2020.
2020-06-17 hst_0799.pmap archived Intrinsic excess thermal energy trapped in the silicon lattice of the Wide Field Camera 3 WFC3 ultraviolet visible UVIS detector, known as dark current, is typically removed from science observations using UVIS dark calibration reference files. However, this dark current can be used as a means to characterize a pixel behavior and determine whether the pixel varies excessively over time compared to its expected noise. We use a novel data structure known as a pixel history image to efficiently evaluate each WFC3/UVIS pixel over time. We find that the vast majority of hot pixels about 8 percent of the detector in 2018 are in fact quite stable and as such, can be calibrated. A small portion of pixels less than 1 percent are genuinely unstable and should not be used. To encode this distinction in the UVIS bad pixel reference files, we employ a data quality flag 32 to mark the unstable pixels identified in this study. Hot pixels continue to be assigned the usual data quality flag 16. With the additional data quality flag, WFC3 UVIS users will have enhanced control over which pixels to include, and which to exclude, in their analyses. This new bad pixel table was generated using the most recent complete anneal period, and therefore accurately captures the most current bad pixel map of the UVIS detector. More information about the UVIS bad pixel tables is outlined in the WFC3 ISR 2018.15.
2020-06-16 hst_0798.pmap archived These WFC3 UVIS superdarks, drk, and CTE corrected superdarks, dkc, will affect all UVIS data taken from May 16th through June 9th 2020. Currently, the automated calibration pipeline and Calibration Reference Data System only have WFC3 UVIS drk and dkc reference files up to a USEAFTER date of May 13th 2020. The automated pipeline should now use these reference files to perform dark subtraction on any UVIS datasets obtained between the dates above because they represent the most accurate estimate of the dark current and hot pixels at the time of the science observation. These WFC3 UVIS drk and dkc files were generated using dark exposures from the HST Cycle 27 daily monitoring program 15715. More information regarding the method used to create UVIS dark calibration reference files can be found in WFC3 ISR 2016 08. Additionally, the header of each reference file has a detailed history section outlining the process and provides a list of datasets used to create each file.
2020-06-05 hst_0797.pmap archived Raw darks were taken from proposal 15769 and processed using CALACS Version 10.2.2. They were then separated by EXPTIME and FLASHDUR and combined with ACSREJ to create short and long-flashed superdarks.

2020-04-07 hst_0781.pmap archived The format of the TDSTAB has changed to include a new CENWAVE column in anticipation of a cenwave-dependent TDS correction in the FUV. Furthermore, the NUV TDSTAB had to include all of the cenwaves instead of treating the new cenwave column with a wildcard value as in previous versions. The CAL_VER keyword also needed to be updated from 3.3.8 to 3.3.9, due to CalCOS versioning.

2020-03-18 hst_0775.pmap archived New weekly biases and darks were created for the new anneal month and need to be delivered for GO observations. These files are available for STIS CCD observations taken after 15 March 2019.
2020-03-18 hst_0774.pmap archived The ACS HRC CCDTAB files j4d1435kj_ccd.fits and m711125gj_ccd.fits need to be removed from CRDS because they are no longer used by any data. A search w for unique CCDTAB file names for HRC data was performed, and found that the two files are unused. The need to remove these files was initiated when new ACS HRC CCDTAB reference files were delivered to HST TEST and it was discovered that j4d1435kj_ccd.fits was missing the header END card. This discovery led the ACS team to request the removal of both j4d1435kj_ccd.fits and m711125gj_ccd.fits because neither files are used by any data.

2020-03-17 hst_0772.pmap archived A minor update to the ACS SBC encircled energy, EE, table, for the imaging modes, was required by the ETC to address errors from SBC observations of new M, L, and T dwarf Phoenix models. This delivery will update the EE table used by pysynphot to make the pysynphot and ETC EE tables identical. The wavelength coverage of the SBC EE table has been extended to 8000 Angstroms, and the brightest pixel fraction column in the pysynphot table is now identical to the ETC tables version.

Additionally, the header of each reference file has a detailed history section outlining the process and provides a list of datasets used to create each file.
2019-10-03 hst_0741.pmap archived New WFC3 UVIS bad pixel tables that include flags value 8 for pixel instability, as described by WFC3 ISR 2018.15
2019-09-27 hst_0740.pmap archived Currently CRDS does not contain WFC3/UVIS binned bias reference files for 2018. These files will be used to perform bias subtraction on any 2x2 and 3x3 binned WFC3/UVIS data with a USEAFTER of 2018-01-01. Furthermore, CRDS only has a 2x2 binned bias for aperture == UVIS1 with a USEAFTER of 1990 and 2008 so we are adding 2x2 binned biases for each year between 2009 - 2018 with aperture UVIS1

The calculations and a full description of the methods used to derive the time dependence can be found in ACS ISR 2019 04.
2019-09-17 hst_0733.pmap archived New TMC file incorporating changes to STIS throughput tables.
2019-09-17 hst_0732.pmap archived 28.1 version of the ETC requires each instrument team to regenerate their throughput curves projected to an MJD that falls in mid cycle 28. These files are being delivered to satisfy that requirement for the STIS Team.
2019-09-16 hst_0731.pmap archived New TMC file incorporating changes to CS throughput tables.
2019-09-13 hst_0730.pmap archived These tables correct the SBC detector throughput to remove 30 percent zeropoint error. The details concerning the creation of these files may be found in ACS ISR 2019 05. Previously delivered versions included an estimate of the time dependent sensitivity for Cycle 27 proposals. This delivery removes the temporary quick fix for the time depdence as that functionality has now been included in the ETC.
2019-09-06 hst_0729.pmap archived These files are used in the dark current subtraction for WFC3 UVIS products for from May 13th 2019 through September 4th 2019.
2019-09-04 hst_0728.pmap archived The superdark and CTE-corrected superdark for the 2004 Jan 04 anneal were missed in the initial batch upload of the new ACS WFC superdarks in early 2018.
2019-08-26 hst_0727.pmap archived These files were generated following the ACS WFC anneal on Aug 20, 2019, and should be used to calibrate ACS WFC observations taken between Jul 23, 2019 and Aug 20, 2019.
2019-08-12 hst_0726.pmap archived These files are used in the dark current subtraction for WFC3 UVIS products for the August 2009 anneal. They should have been with the large redelivery entered last Thursday but were missed in that delivery.
2019-08-12 hst_0725.pmap archived At the conclusion of each year there is an opportunity to create a new superbias, which involves combining together all of the bias frames from January through December. The WFC3 data reduction pipeline, calwf3, uses the superbias reference file to carry out the bias subtraction for all UVIS data. Once the new superbias is delivered it will be used for bias subtraction by every WFC3 image taken after 2018-01-01.
2019-08-12 hst_0724.pmap archived The WFC3 team has replaced dark files with new ones that have different USEAFTER dates. The new files are used in the dark current subtraction for WFC3 UVIS products for from August 2009 through October 2010. They were reprocessed to remove darks affected by scattered light and are scientifically more accurate for users. This update deletes files from the active context that did not have matching USEAFTER dates but that were effectively replaced.
2019-08-09 hst_0723.pmap archived These files are used in the dark current subtraction for WFC3 UVIS products for from August 2009 through October 2010. They were reprocessed to remove darks affected by scattered light and are scientifically more accurate for users.

2019-07-26 hst_0721.pmap archived This removes ACS shutter shading correction SHADFILE and analog-to-digital conversion ATODTAB reference files. These corrections are always set to OMIT in the pipeline and users never need to perform these corrections for ACS data. These files are based on ground/dummy data, and were mainly used to test the ACS calibration pipeline prior to launch.
2019-07-24 hst_0720.pmap archived The first step in the image reduction procedure is bias subtraction. At the conclusion of each year there is an opportunity to create a superbias, which involves combining together all of the bias frames from January through December. The WFC3 data reduction pipeline, calwf3, uses the superbias reference file to carry out the bias subtraction for all UVIS data. Having the most up to date superbias in the pipeline will ensure that data is being optimally processed. The 2018 superbias was made through mean combining 51 images, which resulted in an average pixel value of 0.223 electrons for chip 1 extension 4 and 0.341 electrons for chip 2 extension 1. Once the superbias is delivered and being used by the pipeline it will affect approximately 12,000 WFC3/UVIS images.

2019-07-19 hst_0718.pmap archived Removes SBC dark files from active context. SBC dark files are not used by the automatic pipeline, and users should see ACS ISR 2017-04 or contact the ACS Help Desk for questions about when and how to remove SBC dark current if necessary.
2019-07-16 hst_0717.pmap archived When using the MDRZTAB reference file for a single image, the AstroDrizzle TEAL GUI will crash because driz_sep_kernel value was INDEF, which was an unacceptable input value. This update changes driz_sep_kernel for N=1 images from INDEF to minmed, which prevents TEAL from crashing.
2019-07-15 hst_0716.pmap archived These files were generated following the ACS WFC anneal on June 26, 2019, and should be used to calibrate ACS WFC observations taken between May 31, 2019 and June 26, 2019.
2019-07-01 hst_0715.pmap archived This is the latest version of the yearly postflash reference file used to subtract of the LED signal when postflash is applied to ACS WFC data. This file was generated from on orbit data taken in November 2018 using the updated methodology detailed in ACS ISR 2018 02. The python scripts used to create this file are mkFlash.py and smoothflsh.py, which are contained in the postflash calibration repository on grit.
2019-07-01 hst_0714.pmap archived Updated NUVMAMA PHOTTAB reference file. This file includes derivations of the echelle blaze function shift coefficients for the E230M grating. The temporal coefficients of the blaze shift have been updated using post SM4 E230M 1978 monitoring observations of BD 28D4211. Without the updates the relative photometric accuracy of some recent observations are approaching being outside of specifications in the STIS IHB.
2019-06-20 hst_0713.pmap archived TDCTAB is used to derive a factor that gets multiplied to the NUVMAMA dark reference file before the dark subtraction. We found that the older TDCTAB is not scaling the dark correctly for data taken after Jan 1, 2014, so we added 2 new rows to the TDCTAB to correctly scale the dark.
2019-06-18 hst_0712.pmap archived Removes the ACS SBC P-FLAT from the PFLTFILE rmap. This file was delivered to CRDS for storage purposes in case the need arises to retrieve it in the future. Only LP-flats should be used to calibrate ACS data.
2019-06-17 hst_0711.pmap archived Updated LP-flats for the ACS SBC have been created. The SBC P-flat was updated following ACS ISR 2016-02, which found that coherent pixel-to-pixel variations remained stable in the period 2002-2007, and then after a change have remained stable from 2007 to present. The creation of a new 2007 SBC P-flat necessitated the creation of new LP-flats with this USEAFTER date. In addition, the method for creating SBC L-flats was updated to use a new 2D fitting algorithm rather than a checkerboard. The L-flats were created using many more observations than were available for the previous delivery. This delivery includes a copy of the SBC P-flat for future reference by the ACS team. The P-flat will be removed from the rmap in the next context update as it should not be used to calibrate data and only LP-flats should be used for ACS data calibration.
2019-06-17 hst_0710.pmap archived New weekly biases and darks were created for the new anneal month and need to be delivered for GO observations. These files are available for STIS CCD observations taken after 08 May 2019.

This included updating the sizes of regions flagged previously, as well as searching and adding new regions to the file. We also added the enhanced dark count edge regions on FUVA to the file as a new DQ value, 16384.
2019-06-05 hst_0708.pmap archived New weekly biases and darks were created for the new anneal month and need to be delivered for GO observations. These files are available for STIS CCD observations taken after 16 March 2019.
2019-06-05 hst_0707.pmap archived These files are meant to calibration STIS CCD data taken after 16 March 2019, but they were not renamed in the normal format. These should be deleted and marked as bad so that they are not used.

2019-05-22 hst_0703.pmap archived Quick fix tables correct the SBC detector throughput to remove 30 percent zeropoint error. This is a temporary set meant for Cycle 27 phase II preparations. The filter throughput tables contain a correction for the time dependent sensitivity, assuming and observation date of April 1, 2020 midcycle. The F115LP and F125LP filters still contain a 5 percent systematic offset. A refined set of tables will be delivered once the analysis is complete and Instrument Science Reports published.
2019-05-17 hst_0702.pmap archived Corrects biasfile aperture mapping for ACS WFC data taken before SM4. Previous rmap only matched observations taken in the aperture named WFC instead of all apertures. Pre SM4 ACS WFC data use either the full-frame bias or a cutout of the full-frame bias to calibrate data.

2019-05-07 hst_0698.pmap archived These files were replaced with more recent data.
2019-05-07 hst_0697.pmap archived These new WFC3 IR bad pixel tables and superdarks, described in detail in WFC3 ISR 2019 03 and 04, incorporate a time dependence in order to better calibrate and flag those detector pixels that have changed their behaviors since launch, e.g. a pixel that has become hot or unstable since launch, or regained its stability since launch. They were also created using many more years worth of calibration data since the previous releases which significantly reduces the errors associated with their creation, and allows for more accurate dark calibrations and bad pixel flags. The IR Blob flags are also all shifted to correctly match those center positions recorded in WFC3 ISR 2018 06. The new MDRIZTAB parameter file, which is designed to work with these new WFC3 IR bad pixel tables and superdarks, contains significant changes to the default drizzling parameters for WFC3 IR and is described in detail in WFC3 ISR 2019 05. These changes include treating stable hot pixels, which are now well cali brated in the new superdarks, as good, optimized cosmic ray rejection parameters to prevent improper flagging of point soures, improved sky subtraction, and better handling of single input frames. Delivered by Ben Sunnquist for WFC3.
