Spitzer Documentation & Tools

Purpose and Description

IRSCLEAN is an interactive IDL tool for creating bad pixel masks from Spitzer IRS BCD (and pre-BCD) image data, and "cleaning" the masked pixels in a set of data. The interactive version of the program, IRSCLEAN_MASK, is an outgrowth of the non-interactive IRSCLEAN package developed by members of the SSC IRS instrument support team and the Cornell IRS Instrument team. IRSCLEAN_MASK takes care of file input/output and queries you when it needs information.
