HcalNZS primary dataset in AOD format from RunC of 2012. Run period from run number 198022 to 203742.
This dataset contains all runs from 2012 RunC. The list of validated runs, which must be applied to all analyses, can be found in
Events in this primary dataset were selected to aid in the calibration of the HCAL subsystem. They include zero-suppressed events.
Data taking / HLT
The collision data were assigned to different RAW datasets using the following HLT configuration.
Data processing / RECO
This primary AOD dataset was processed from the RAW dataset by the following step:
Global tag: FT_R_53_V18::All
Configuration file for RECO step reco_2012C_HcalNZS
During data taking all the runs recorded by CMS are certified as good for physics analysis if all subdetectors, trigger, lumi and physics objects (tracking, electron, muon, photon, jet and MET) show the expected performance. Certification is based first on the offline shifters evaluation and later on the feedback provided by detector and Physics Object Group experts. Based on the above information, which is stored in a specific database called Run Registry, the Data Quality Monitoring group verifies the consistency of the certification and prepares a json file of certified runs to be used for physics analysis. For each reprocessing of the raw data, the above mentioned steps are repeated. For more information see:
