Using the data set from T-234 to T+968 sec from the recent telemetry downlink,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 190204A (trigger #887579 and #887580)
(Lien et al., GCN Circ. 23852). In this circular, we adopted the trigger time
from the first trigger (#887579), 2019-02-04 05:46:01 UT, to be consistent
with the T0 quoted in other circulars.
The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 351.491, 54.884 deg which is
RA(J2000) = 23h 25m 57.8s
Dec(J2000) = +54d 53' 02.4"
with an uncertainty of 1.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 48%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows several overlapping pulses that starts
at ~T-7 s and ends at ~T+55 s. The main peak occurs at ~T+5 s.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 26.4 +- 7.5 sec (estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-6.93 to T+53.82 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model. The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
1.30 +- 0.04. The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 1.3 +- 0.03 x 10^-5 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+4.55 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 30.5 +- 0.9 ph/cm2/sec. All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
The results of the batgrbproduct analysis are available at
(Please note that this page shows the automatic analysis from the 2nd trigger #887580,
because BAT associated most of the data with this trigger ID. Thus, the T0 displayed in
the webpage is 4.995 sec later than the trigger time referenced in this circular.)
