Detector MC Naming Schemes

Avocado (Mock Data Challenge)

The base of the individual files follows the naming convention:

<key><ikey><itgt><iflv><S><RRR>_0000

ikey (key)
  1. (N) Near Challenge Data
  2. (F) Far Challenge Data
  3. (n) Near MC
  4. (f) Far MC
itgt
  1. in detector only
  2. in rock only
  3. detector + rock overlayed
iflv
  1. beam
  2. nu_e
  3. nu_tau

The <RRR> represent the random seed sequence used to make the run unique; <S> represent the split (0 for FarDet, 1,2,3 for NearDet). The files have a final extension of type.release.root where type is cand, sntp or snts.
