A Quick Tour of GRBlog
GRBlog can find and display messages meeting a variety of criteria. When multiple messages are selected, only the first few lines after the author list are shown. Click on "FULL TEXT" to see the entire message. The title bar gives the lead authors and a link to the message in the original archive. Type a message name (eq. GCN 1234) into the message field on the right had side of any page and click "show" or press enter to jump to a specific message.
GRBlog can produce light curve plots or data tables using data compiled from the messages in the database (eg. GCN Circulars). You can click on the data points to display the source message. To see a light curve for a specific burst, go to the burst summary (see Burst View below) and click on the "plot data" fields in the summary table.
GRBlog can create pages devoted to individual bursts that show a table of basic burst data (RA and DEC, fluence, afterglow detections, etc.) along with all the messages related to the burst. The burst field on the right side of each page is used to display summaries for specific bursts. Just type in a burst name (eg. 030329, 030329B) and press enter or click the "show" button.
GRBlog can compile data from messages in the database to produce tables giving the vital burst information. Values in the table link to the source messages or give links to more detailed descriptions.
All of the search capabilities of GRBlog can be combined to allow for highly specific queries. Follow the "Search" link on the left hand side of any page to bring up the search form. There are many search options, but you can fill in as few fields as you like.
- Show a table of GRB's with known redshifts between 0.1 and 1.5, followed-up optically in the first 12 hours, and with radio afterglows detected.
- Plot R and unfiltered optical data for GRB's with durations between 5 and 100 seconds, fluence less than 1e-4 erg cm-2,
no known X-ray afterglow, and host galaxies brighter than R=26th mag.
