Observational data on the bursting activity of all five known Soft Gamma Repeaters are presented. This information was obtained with Konus gamma-ray burst experiments on board Venera 11-14, Wind, and Kosmos-2326 spacecraft in the period from 1978 to 2000. These data on appearance rates, time histories, and energy spectra of repeated soft bursts obtained with similar instruments and collected together in a comparable form should be useful for further studies of SGRs.

Catalog consists of four parts:

  2. Full set of figures gzipped ps-file (1251 kb)
  3. 50 separate PDF-files with small set of figures which can be downloaded individually according to reader choice (50 files with total size 1728 kb)
  4. Files of data on time histories and energy spectra for observed events.
