CASSIS products (high-resolution)

Reading the default downloadable spectra:

In Python, some examples:

  • IPAC tables can be read with astropy.table:
from astropy.table import Table'cassis_tbl_opt_16205568.tbl', format='ascii')
  • YAAAR FITS files can be read with
from import fits
import numpy as np
hdu ='cassis_yaaar_opt_16205568.fits') 
ncols = len(hdu[0].data[0,:])
wdata = np.array(hdu[0].data[:,0])
fdata = np.array(hdu[0].data[:,1])  
  • Unfortunately, YAAAR FITS files are not recognized by, but to read YAAAR FITS files as Tables, one can do:
hdu ='cassis_yaaar_opt_16205568.fits') #default is readonly
names=tuple([hdu[0].header['COL*DEF'][x] for x,h in enumerate(hdu[0].header['COL*DEF'])])
t=fits.BinTableHDU(data=Table(hdu[0].data, names=names), header=hdu[0].header)
