The BeppoSAX catalog of GRB X-ray afterglow observations. De Pasquale M., Piro L., Gendre B., Amati L., Antonelli L.A., Costa E., Feroci M., Frontera F., Nicastro L., Soffitta P., in't Zand J. <Astron. Astrophys. 455, 813 (2006)> =2006A&A...455..813D
ADC_Keywords: Gamma rays ; X-ray sources Keywords: X-rays: general - gamma-rays: bursts - catalogs Abstract: We present the catalog of X-ray afterglow observed by BeppoSAX from the launch of the satellite to the end of the mission. Thirty-three X-ray afterglows out of 39 observations were securely identified based on their fading behavior. We have extracted the continuum parameters (decay index, spectral index, flux, absorption) for all available afterglows. We point out a possible correlation between the X-ray afterglow luminosity and the energy emitted during the prompt gamma-ray event. Description: This catalog gives the list of gamma-ray bursts observed by the BeppoSAX narrow fields instruments. We list for convenience bursts discovered by BeppoSAX or discovered by another mission but which X-ray afterglow was observed by BeppoSAX (table1.dat). We also list the properties of these bursts (table2.dat). Other informations, such as the spectral and temporal properties of the afterglow, extended to the XMM-Newton and Chandra results can be obtained at File Summary:

Note (1): Instrument as follows: NFI = BeppoSAX Narrow Field Instruments WFC = BeppoSAX Wide Field Camera (IPN) = InterPlanetary Network (RXTE) = RXTE All Sky Monitor In parenthesis, non-BeppoSAX instrument. In such a case, the localization displayed has been provided by NFI. Note (2): GRB 980425 was also observed between Nov. 10.75 and Nov. 12.0 Note (3): Detection flag as follows: N = No optical afterglow detection 0 = No optical studies Y = Optical afterglow detection S = Optical afterglow detection and supernova association Note (4): For GRB 000214 a redshift range was derived : 0.37-0.47. The median value is indicated in the table.

Note (1): Individual notes on GRB: * GRB 991106 may not be a GRB. See Cornelisse et al. (2002A&A...392..885C). The 40-700keV fluence is a conservative 3 sigma limit based on GCN 448. * GRB 020410 2-10keV duration and fluence are lower limits * GRB 020427 40-700keV fluence is an upper limit Note (2): When not available, values of 2-10keV fluences have been calculated from the 2-26keV fluences and assuming the spectral parameters reported in the references.
