Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This is the reduced APEX data covering the CO(2-1) and CO(6-5) emission lines for the 9 quasars as described in in M.E. Jarvis et al. 2020, MNRAS, 498, 1560 (DOI: 10.1903/mnras/staa2196). The pre-print article is also available on the public arXiv: arxiv.org/abs/2007.10351. As explained in the paper 9 of the quasars have CO(2-1) emission-line data and three of the quasars, additionally, have CO(6-5) data. All details of data acquisition and data reduction are explained in the journal article.
The tar file contains 12 .fits files, clearly named to correspond to each quasar and indicating which CO line is in the data. Comprehensive meta data is attached as headers to each fits file following the astronomy standards.
A python code is also provided in the tar file to plot the data for each source.
