8. the calibration files

This section describes the calibration files proper (located in the calib subdirectories). The term refers to files describing physical characteristics of specific SAX instruments.
Files describing the format of the data associated to the SAX instruments are described elsewhere, although they may be stored in the same directory.

The underlying idea about calibration files is that all files which comprise only one or a few numeric values are kept in ASCII files (usually with a name like something.coeff) while bulkier data (like relative gain images) are kept with XAS naming conventions in XAS format data files (these will be by definition system dependent, since XAS files use native binary format).

Some information follows about SAX calibration files.
