An automated fit of a cutoff power-law spectrum has been performed for H3979. The fit of the model to the data is shown below; the calculated values of Epeak and the burst fluence (25-100 keV) are:
Epeak = 147.76 keV Fluence = 1.907e-06 erg/cm^2 Duration = 8.500 seconds PseudoZ = 5.098
These results are computed by an automatic script. Please visually inspect the XSPEC summary plot to judge the quality of the results.
Please note that this value of Epeak results from a fit to FREGATE data (8-400 keV) only -- a more reliable joint fit to FREGATE and WXM data is not yet automated. As such, this Epeak estimate is likely to be biased high, especially for soft events, such as XRFs. In our experience, the inclusion of WXM data can lower the value of E_peak substantially. The above Epeak value should thus be viewed as a preliminary estimate. As better fits become available, the information will be posted here.
