We present a preliminary analysis of previously unstudied gamma-ray burst pulses. Our sample consists of gamma-ray bursts observed between December 19, 1995 and February 2, 1997 by the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on NASA’s Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory. We found that the observable properties of these pulses are consistent with those of previously isolated pulses. We also announce the discovery of two exceedingly long individual pulses representing either the tail of the duraSon distribution or a separate pulse subclass.
