Observational data on the short GRBs obtained with the GGS-Wind Konus experiment in the period from 1994 to 2002 are presented. The catalog currently includes 130 events, detailing their appearance rate, time histories, and energy spectra. Evidence of an early X-ray and gamma-ray afterglow for some of the short GRBs is discussed.

Catalog presents in two forms:

  1. The form for printing. You can download the whole catalog (96 pages) in one ps-file (all)(1.7 Mb) or pdf-file (all)(1.5 Mb) or separately the catalog text (with tables; 12 pages) ps-file (text)(114 Kb) or pdf-file (text)(100 Kb) and the catalog figures (164 figures on 84 pages) ps-file (figures)(1.7 Mb) or pdf-file (figures)(1.4 Mb)
  2. Web-form, which comprises tables, figures and files of data on time histories and energy spectra for observed events. See the data description.
