        Rootname of monthly times series template
    
    ts_start
        TS_START value: yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss
    
    ts_end
        TS_END value: yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss
    
    gong_month = INDEF
        GONG month number
    
    gong_day = "0000/00/00"
        GONG date for merged daily template (YYYY/MM/DD)
    
    l_start = 0
        Starting L-value
    
    l_end = 250
        Ending L-value
    
    m_type = "all"

DESCRIPTION
    Mkts  is  used  to  construct  a GONG time series template of images
    with all pixel values set to zero and the DSDS product id  given  by
    rootname.
    
    Note,  the  task will automatically generate "mrvmt" files given the
    number of the GONG month via gong_month,  or  "tmrvdt"  files  given
    the  GPS  date  in the format "yyyy/mm/dd" via gong_day.  Using this
    method can save the operator from error in trying to figure out  the
    proper start/stop dates and names.
    
    The  task keys off of the hidden parameters gong_month and gong_day.
    If these parameters are the default values show, then the task  will
    ask for rootname, ts_start and ts_end.
    
    
    
EXAMPLES
    1. Create a merge template time series for 96/06/06:
    
      gr> mkts gong_day="96/06/06"
    
    2. Create the above merge template manually:
    
      gr> mkts mrvdt960606 "1996/06/06 00:00:16" "1996/06/06 23:59:16"
    
    3.  Create  the  GONG month 11 template assuming a single large disk
    partition:
    
      gr> mkts gong_month=11.0
    
    4. Create the above  month  template  manually,  assuming  a  single
    large disk partition:
    
      gr> mkts mrvmt960518 "1996/05/01 00:00:16" "1996/06/05 23:59:16"
    
    5.  Do  the  above,  but  assume  there  are  five 3Gbyte partitions
    (/d[1-5]):
    
      gr> reset imdir = /d1/pixels/
      gr> mkts mrvmt960518 "1996/05/01 00:00:16" "1996/06/05 23:59:16"
            l_start=0 l_end=117
    
      gr> reset imdir = /d2/pixels/
      gr> mkts mrvmt960518 "1996/05/01 00:00:16" "1996/06/05 23:59:16"
            l_start=118 l_end=167
    
      gr> reset imdir = /d3/pixels/
      gr> mkts mrvmt960518 "1996/05/01 00:00:16" "1996/06/05 23:59:16"
            l_start=168 l_end=205
    
      gr> reset imdir = /d4/pixels/
      gr> mkts mrvmt960518 "1996/05/01 00:00:16" "1996/06/05 23:59:16"
            l_start=206 l_end=238
    
      gr> reset imdir = /d5/pixels/
      gr> mkts mrvmt960518 "1996/05/01 00:00:16" "1996/06/05 23:59:16"
            l_start=239 l_end=250
    
    
    
TIME REQUIREMENTS
    
    On Sunset, SS-50/504,  creating a month time series  template  takes
    about 1hr 40min (wall clock).
    
    
DISKSPACE REQUIREMENTS
    
    For  a  complete month time series, L=0-250, 13Gbytes is needed.  If
    the entire template cannot fit on one disk, the pixel files  can  be
    distributed  across  the drives by resetting imdir and with multiple
    calls to mkts.  The only requirement is  that  all  the  IRAF  image
    headers be located in one directory.  See example #5.
