Parameters

This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
thresholdmaskingyesreal0.02 
The scale factor for excluding regions from the smoothing based on a mask image. In the default mode the average exposure is calculated and then any pixel with exposure less than fraction*average value is excluded.
 
elowlistyesint350 800 
Low energy for successive bands in eV
 
ehighlistyesint800 1300 
High energy for successive bands in eV
 
binningyesint1 
Binning control with 1 for no binning, 2,4,8,16,32 for binning by 2, 4,8,16,32.
 
withpartcontrolyesboolyes 
Particle background control, "yes" to subtract the model particle background image.
 
withsoftcontrolyesboolyes 
Soft proton background control, "yes" to subtract the soft proton background image.
 
withswcxcontrolyesboolyes 
Solar wind charge exchange background control, "yes" to subtract the swcx background image.
 
withmaskcontrolyesboolyes 
For masking with an additional image.
 
maskyesdatasetmask.fit 
Mask image file name.
