of the Konus-Wind team, report:

The long-duration ����-�������� GRB 130812B
(IPN triangulation: Hurley at al., GCN 15094)
triggered Konus-Wind at T0=39316.109 s UT (10:55:16.109).

The light curve shows multiple pulses from ~T0-0.5 s to ~T0+16s
followed by a weak decaying emission during the next ~15 s.

The Konus-Wind light curve of this GRB is available at
http://www.ioffe.ru/LEA/GRBs/GRB130812_T39316/

As observed by Konus-Wind, the burst
had a fluence of (1.52 � 0.03)x10-5 erg/cm2,
and a 64-ms peak flux, measured from T0+4.032s,
of (3.5 � 0.3)x10-6 erg/cm2/s
(both in the 20 keV - 10 MeV energy range).

The time-integrated spectrum (measured from T0 to T0+33.024 s)
is best fit in the 20 keV - 15 MeV range
by the cutoff power law with the following model parameters:
the photon index alpha = -1.33 � 0.07,
the peak energy Ep = 78 � 3 keV,
chi2 = 90/98 dof.

The time-averaged spectrum of the bright phase of the burst
(measured from T0 to T0+16.640 s)
is best fit in the 20 keV - 15 MeV range
by the cutoff power law with the following model parameters:
the photon index alpha = -1.04 � 0.07,
the peak energy Ep = 90 � 2 keV,
chi2 = 75/97 dof.

All the quoted results are preliminary.
