Abstract:

The existence of either pre- or post-burst emission can provide substantial new information about the burst source and its local environment. We have data from several events serendipitously in or near the OSSE field of view at the time of the burst. We present pre- and post-burst flux limits from one such event, GRB 940301. The OSSE data for other periods when scheduled observations have included burst locations will enable us to search for pre- and post- burst emission on many time scales.
