GCN Circular 13782
G. Fitzpatrick (UCD) reports on behalf of the Fermi GBM Team: At 04:08:40.75 UT on 16 September 2012, the Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor triggered and located GRB 120916A (trigger 369461323/120916173) which was also detected by Fermi LAT (G. Vianello et al. GCN 13777), Konus-Wind (S. Golenetskii et al. GCN 13781) and the IPN (K. Hurley et al. GCN 13778). The on-ground calculated location is consistent with the LAT location. The GBM light curve consists of 3 peaks with a duration (T90) of about 53 s (50-300 keV). The last peak is softer and corresponds to the trigger time, the earlier emission begins at ~T0-60 s. GBM did not trigger on this earlier emission period owing to the triggering being disabled while Fermi was passing through a region of high geomagnetic latitude. The time-averaged spectrum from T0-53 s to T0+0.2 s is best fit by a Band function with Epeak = 312.40 (+51.30/-47.20) keV, alpha = -0.99 (+0.06/-0.06), and beta = -1.90 (+0.09/-0.12). The event fluence (10-1000 keV) in this time interval is (1.95 +/- 0.05)E-05 erg/cm^2. The 1-sec peak photon flux measured starting from T0+-30.7205 s in the 10-1000 keV band is 9.72 +/- 0.28 ph/s/cm^2. The spectral analysis results presented above are preliminary; final results will be published in the GBM GRB Catalog.
