Jun 27, 2024 (10AM – 12PM) JWebbinar 33 – Register by June 21

JWST NIRSpec MOS Data Reduction

This webinar will cover NIRSpec MOS (multi-object spectroscopy) data reduction by the JWST pipeline with example notebooks. We will cover recent pipeline updates that deliver improved spectra with default settings. We will also discuss lingering caveats, workarounds, and techniques to reprocess data, including editing the MSA metafile and master background subtraction.

I'm also happy to hear your tips, tricks, and requests. Please contact me via e-mail or the high-z SAZERAC Slack.
