Phase 3 Policies for ESO Spectroscopic Public Surveys

Survey products will be delivered to the ESO archive in a format specified in Sect. 4 of the ESO Science Data Products standard [PDF], which is accessible from the top-level Phase 3 web page. Please be aware of the improvement and changes on the data interface associated with the Phase 3 upgrade; more information available at these web pages:
http://www.eso.org/sci/observing/phase3/upgrade_summary.html
and
http://www.eso.org/sci/observing/phase3/faq.html

The Phase 3 submission for the data products from spectroscopic public surveys is now opened. The upload of the data products should be completed before July 31st, 2018, after which the data will be validated for agreement with the data standards and content, then archived and published via the ESO SAF, for access by the astronomical community.

When?

15 July - 15 August 2016

Gaia-ESO 1D wavelength calibrated, continuum normalised spectra, including extracted sky spectrum and error map Yes Yes
- Yes
PESSTO
1D wavelength and flux calibrated spectra, including extracted sky spectrum and error map Yes Yes, including spectral vatiability curves (multi epoch observations)
Yes Yes
  • For the submission #2 of the VIMOS public spectroscopic surveys, the PIs of VANDELS and LEGA-C are invited to submit the data products based on observations that were completed before the reference date of June 1st, 2017, i.e. six months before the opening of the current Phase 3 call. The mandatory data products are 1D spectra (one-dimensional and two-dimensional wavelength and flux calibrated spectra; single OB 1D spectra as well as co-added spectra are to be released for LEGA-C; 1D and 2D spectra from sub-sets of 20 hours of on-source integration for VANDELS); catalogues of the physical parameters are mandatory for the second submission. Description of 1D spectra products to be submitted are specified in the approved Survey Management plans, and included in the Table below.
