CASA RC Variables: Lost and Found

Below are the CASA RC variables I've found in the codebase. If know what a particular does or know that it is no longer relevant, please add a note to that effect. On the line following the variable, put six spaces, an asterisk, another space and then the text. Pleas add your name in parentheses afterwards.

  1. measures.aberration.d_interval:
    • interpolation interval as time (fraction of days is default unit) over which linear interpolation is used (default: 0.04 d) (D.Petry)
  2. measures.aberration.b_usejpl:
    • measures.aberration.b_usejpl: use the JPL database values for IAU1980. Else analytical expression, relative error about 10E-9 (D.Petry)
  3. measures.jpl.ephemeris:
    • Sets the JPL database to be used (at the moment of writing DE200 (default), or DE405). If using the JPL database, the measures.aberration.d_interval is irrelevant.
  4. measures.earthfield.d_interval:
    • interpolation interval (km), default 50 km (D.Petry)
  5. measures.measiers.b_notable:
    • Do not use IERS tables to convert measures (D. Petry)
  6. measures.measiers.b_forcepredict:
    • Use values from prediction tables even if Measured table asked by program. (D. Petry)
  7. measures.measiers.d_predicttime:
    • Use values from prediction tables if (now - time) less than value given (default 5) (days) (D. Petry)
  8. measures.b1950.d_epoch:
    • definition for B1950 epoch (years), default 2000. (D. Petry)
  9. measures.iau2000.b_use:
    • if True, use the IAU2000 precession/nutation (default False, use IAU1980) (D.Petry)
  10. measures.iau2000.b_use2000a:
    • if True and measures.iau2000.b_use==True, then use the high precision 2000A model (default: False) (D. Petry)
  11. measures.nutation.d_interval:
    • approximation interval as time (fraction of days is default unit) over which linear approximation is used (default: 0.04 d) (D.Petry)
  12. measures.nutation.b_useiers:
    • If true, use IERS database nutation corrections for IAU 1980 (default False) (D.Petry)
  13. measures.nutation.b_usejpl:
    • if true, use the JPL database nutations for IAU1980 (default False, use analytical expression, relative error about 10-9. See also measures.jpl.ephemeris (D.Petry)
  14. measures.precession.d_interval:
    • approximation interval as time (fraction of days is default unit) over which linear approximation is used (default: 0.1 d) (D.Petry)
  15. measures.solarpos.d_interval:
    • interpolation interval for the position of the Sun as time (fraction of days is default unit) over which linear approximation is used (default: 0.04 d) (D.Petry)
  16. measures.solarpos.b_usejpl:
    • if True, calculate solar position using the JPL ephemeris tables for Earth and Sun (default False) (D.Petry)
  17. measures.b1950.d_epoch:
    • The conversion between B1950 and J2000 may have an Epoch. If none given, an epoch of 2000.0 is assumed for the conversion, unless the measures.b1950.d_epoch is given. (D. Petry)
  18. measures.comet.file:
    • The default COMET ephemeris table used by the MeasComet constructor when no other ephemeris is given (default: empty String, i.e. none) (D.Petry)
  19. measures.DE200.directory:
    • overrides the default location of the DE200 ephemeris (D.Petry)
  20. measures.DE405.directory
    • overrides the default location of the DE405 ephemeris (D.Petry)
  21. measures.directory, measures.ierspredict.directory, measures.iersop97.directory:
    • override the default location for these IERS related tables (D.Petry)
