BATSE Gamma Ray Burst Light Curves
This page allows you view the light curves of gamma ray bursts observed with BATSE. Currently, this archive does not cover the entire mission but we hope to update the archive with older lightcurves.
To view event time histories, select a BATSE trigger number, and choose the energy channels and plot type. You can select from several combinations of energy channels of the four channel BATSE disciminator data.
Typical data coverage includes three BATSE discriminator datatypes combined to produce each lightcurve:
An event for which a full dataset exists will have data in the following time
sequence: DISCLA, PREB, DISCSC, DISCLA, as shown in the image above. All
datatypes in the graph will be plotted in a single color. The trigger time is
t=0. The temporal resolution shown in a plot may vary
among the different datatypes. The minimum resolution, if available, is shown
in the upper right corner of the plot.
