The SCUBA Polarimeter Legacy Catalogue

NGC 1333 in Perseus
Welcome to the CADC repository of the SCUBA Polarimeter Legacy Catalogue!

The Legacy Catalogue Dataset consists of data cubes of the Stokes I, Q and U emission maps at 850 microns that contain all useful data obtained in "jiggle-map" imaging mode with the SCUBA polarimeter on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope. SCUBA polarimetry data are available to the public in the JCMT asf=true&archive= hosted by CADC.

The paper describing the Datasets and Catalogue can be downloaded here. Use of these reduced data or tabulated data should be accompanied by the following reference in any published work:

Matthews, B.C., McPhee, C., Fissel, L., & Curran, R.L. 2009, ApJS, 182, 143-204.

The data products are available for download as individual Stokes IQU data cubes in either FITS or NDF format, or the whole catalogue of data can be downloaded at once. Each cube contains data and variance maps for I, Q and U. The entire data table of science sources as published in the paper is also available for download on ADS. Note that this table has data sampled at 10'' (in some cases binned to 20'' as described in Matthews et al.) and contains only regions for which significant (p/dp > 2, dp < 4%, I>0) vectors were detected. The planetary polarization data table can also be downloaded. The same criteria apply to sampling and significance for those data, which can be accessed from ADS.

The individual reduced data sets are divided into two categories:

The reduced datasets for all science and planetary can be downloaded in their entirety, in FITS or NDF format. These files are available as gzipped tarred files.

If you have difficulty with any of these files, or want a different data product that you require assistance to generate, please contact:
