The short-duration GRB 220412B
(Swift-BAT detection: Gropp et al., GCN Circ. 31886;
Fermi-GBM observation: Veres and Meegan, GCN Circ. 31908)
triggered Konus-Wind at T0=26885.231 s UT (07:28:05.231).

The burst light curve shows a single pulse
with a total duration of ~86 ms.

The Konus-Wind light curve of this GRB is available at

As observed by Konus-Wind, the burst
had a fluence of 3.2(-0.1,+1.2)x10^-7 erg/cm2,
and a 16-ms peak flux, measured from T0-42 ms,
of 1.1(-0.1,+0.4)x10^-5 erg/cm2/s
(both in the 20 keV - 10 MeV energy range).

Since the main fraction of the burst emission was detected
before the trigger, the spectral analysis was performed using
the KW 3-channel light curve data.

Modelling the KW 3-channel time-integrated spectrum
(measured from T0-52 ms to T0+34 ms)
by a power law with exponential cutoff model:
dN/dE ~ (E^alpha)*exp(-E*(2+alpha)/Ep),
yields alpha = -0.03(-0.47,+0.59) and Ep = 283(-52,+68) keV.

All the quoted errors are at the 68% confidence level.
All the quoted values are preliminary.
