LSST Throughputs repository

This repository contains reference throughput curves from various surveys (Megacam, WISE, SDSS, Johnson UBV and various other telescopes), together with the expected performance throughput curves for LSST.

The LSST throughput curves are in baseline, with more information on the curves available there in that If you are only concerned with calculating expected magnitudes for LSST in various bandpasses, then you should use the 'baseline' throughputs.

The files in 'imsim' are related to the throughputs used in the imsim simulations. The 'goal' directory holds the throughputs used as goals for imsim development at the time of tagging (of this SVN directory), and the 'actual' directory holds the imsim actual throughputs, at the current time. Please take these with a grain of salt; they could be outdated.

The directory 'atmos' contains various airmass atmospheres, both without and with (the files ending with _aerosol.dat) aerosols.

More information is available in README files within each directory.
