Candidate VettingΒΆ

GWCelery orchestrates and supervises performing basic data quality and detector state checks, grouping of events from individual pipelines into superevents, initiating automated sky localization and parameter estimation, inferring classification and source properties, and sending alerts.

A Data Quality Report is prepared that consists of a semi-automated detector characterization and data quality investigation for each event. It provides a variety of metrics based on auxiliary instrumental and environmental sensors that are used by a rapid response team in order to make a decision of whether to confirm or retract a candidate.

The rapid response team consists of commissioning, computing, and calibration experts from each of the detector sites, pipeline experts, detector characterization experts, and follow-up advocates.
