Standard Calibrations

For all queue observations, a set of standard calibrations (the "baseline calibrations") will be taken by Gemini Staff to ensure the long-term utility of data in the archive. The baseline calibration set varies from instrument to instrument and from mode to mode. Baseline calibration data may be shared between programs and will be distributed to the users as part of their dataset.

The baseline calibrations for each instrument (and their time charging) are described in the Performance and Use / Calibrations section for each instrument.
