The SCUBA-2 SRO Data Reduction Cookbook
This cookbook provides a short introduction to Starlink facilities, especially Smurf, the Sub-Millimetre User Reduction Facility, for reducing and displaying SCUBA-2 SRO data. We describe some of the data artefacts present in SCUBA-2 time series and methods we employ to mitigate them. In particular, we illustrate the various steps required to reduce the data, and the Dynamic Iterative Map-Maker, which carries out all of these steps using a single command.
For information on SCUBA-2 data reduction since SRO, please see SC/21.
