PI new data notification Emails
Gemini PIs are used to receiving an email from the Gemini Science Archive when a PI data package has been created. Additionally, We now have the capability to send automatic emails in the morning following observing to notify PIs and/or Co-Is that new data were taken for their program.
In the future, this functionality will be assumed by the Gemini Science Archive, but in the interim we are providing this facility via our internal data handling systems. This means that the system is not connected to the "Notify PI" check-box in the OT, and email notifications must be configured by a Gemini science staff member.
If you would like nightly email notification of new data for your program, please contact your Contact Scientist to request this. You may supply additional email addresses that you would like on the notification list for your program. In addition, you may choose to get notifications only when science data is taken, or when any data for your program are taken (i.e. this will include day-time calibrations, etc).
Email notifications for data taken during the night go out at 8:00am in the morning following the observing night. The email contains a summary table of all the relevant data files.
These Emails are triggered purely on the presence of data files from night time observing. These data will not generally have been Quality Assessed, or their metadata validated, at the time the Email notifications go out. Data Quality and FITS header information in these files will be updated as QA proceeds. Data should be retrieved from the Gemini Science Archive in the normal manner, and PI package emails will continue to be sent by the GSA in the usual way.
