        CALIB Directory Content

The CALIB folder contains the various database information required to calibrate OSIRIS images.
The information provided is stored in a format readable by the OSIRIS calibration pipeline software which may
not always follow the PDS standard. All information is, however, either readable using either a text editor (ascii
format) of a std PDS data file reader (PDS image data and PDS table data).

The CALIB folder has the following structure:

   CALIB --|-- ABSCAL               : Folder containing the DN/s to W/m2/sr/nm  for various optical filter combinations
           |
           |-- ADC                  : Folder containing the low/high adc offset valid for the various amplifier combinations
           |
           |-- BIAS                 : Folder containing the bias offsets for th various operational modes of OSIRIS
           |
           |-- DISTORSION            : Folder containing the optical distorsion model parameters for the cameras
           |
           |-- FILTERS              : Folder containing the filter transmission curves for the various optical filters
           |
           |-- FLATFIELDS           : Folder containing the flatfields for the various filter combinations
           |
           |-- MIRRORS              : Folder containing the mirror reflectivity curves (for both single mirror and for full optical path)
           |
           |
           |-- QE                   : The CCD quantum efficiency
           |
           |-- SHUTTER                : Folder containing calibration parameters for the two shutter mechanisms of the cameras

    The data files conatins <tag>=<value> lists with the format:
    <WIN Mode>_<Binning>_<amplifier>_SYNC<sync value>

FILTERS:
    Contains filter transmission curves for the various optical filter that can be placed in the optical beam

    The folder contains files with the names: <camera>_<model>_<filter name>_V<version>_<creation date>.tab

    the first column contains the wavelength [nm]
    the second column contains the transmission [fraction]
    the third column contains the reflectivity of the filter surface

FLATFIELDS:
    Contains the flatfields required to calibration OSIRIS images

    The folder contains files with the names: <camera>_<model>_<filter number>_V<version>_<creation date>.img

    The data files are stored in a data format that can be read with a PDS image reader

MIRRORS:
    Contains the reflectivity curves for the mirrors of OSIRIS

    The folder contains files with the names: <camera>_<model>_MIRROR_V<version>_<creation date>.tab

    The data files are tabular text files with:

    the first colum containing the wavelength [nm]
    the second column containg the single mirror reflectance
