ADC_Keywords: Gamma rays Mission_Name: GRANAT Abstract: Phebus instrument, a part of scientific equipment on board the Granat astrophysical Observatory, has the purpose to study cosmic gamma-ray bursts and solar flares in the range from 100keV to 100MeV. This is the final catalog of cosmic gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) observed in the PHEBUS experiment Granat orbiting astrophysical observatory. This catalogue contains information on 66 events recorded from December 1989 to May 199, 52 events recorded from June 1991 to December 199, 60 events recorded from January 1993 until September 1994, and 32 events recorded from October 1994 until December 1996. We provide the GRB light curves in the range 100keV - 1.6MeV, energy spectra and data on the total energy fluxes and energy fluxes at GRB luminosity peaks at energies above 100keV. File Summary:

Note (1): YYMMDDa represents the mean year, month and day of burst registration. (PhebusB YYMMDDa in Simbad) Note (2): Number of session of observation, followed by a decimal point and the registration number of the burst cell in this session. Note (3): Duration time is the interval between the times when 5% and 95% of the total burst energy was released. Note (4): The hardness of the integrated energy spectra is defined as the ratio of count numbers in the ranges 400-1000keV and 100-400keV. Note (5): Analytical laws expressing the spectral data:: P: power law where Counts(E)=A.Ep: P contains dimensionless exponent p B: Bremsstrahlung law where Counts(E)=A.exp(-E/Eo)/E: P contains the Eo value in keV S: synchrotron radiation law where Counts(E)=A.exp(-(E/Ec)1/3) P contains the Ec value in keV Note (6): The chi2/DOF ratio characterizes the spectrum fitting reliability. In the first and second part of the catalog, the ratio chi2/DOF is given, in the third and last part of the catalog, the values of chi2 and DOF are given. Note (7): The burst was observed by other instruments: (B) BATSE (onboard Compton Gamma Ray Observatory) (K) KONUS/WIND (Konus instrument on WIND spacecraft) (T) TGRS/WIND (Transient Gamma-Ray Spectrometer on WIND spacecraft) (U) ULYSSES (spacecraft Ulysses) (Y) YOHKOH (Japanese satellite Yohkoh) (D) DMS (Defense Meteorite Satellite Program) (C) SROSS-C (Indian SROSS-C satellite) (G) GINGA (spacecraft Ginga) (W) WATCH (onboard GRANAT Observatory) (S) SIGMA (onboard GRANAT Observatory) (E) EURECA (EURECA satellite) (P) PVO (Pioneer Venus Orbiter)
