The long GRB 230304B (Fermi GBM Final Real-time Localization: Fermi GBM team,
GCN Circ. 33396; AstroSat CZTI detection:  Navaneeth et al., GCN Circ 33400) 
triggered the CALET Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (CGBM) at 14:35:45.442 UTC
on 4 March 2023
The burst signal was seen by only the SGM detector.

The burst light curve shows a multi-peaked structure that starts
at T+3.6 sec, peaks at T+4.1 sec, and ends at T+19.3 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 14.4 +/- 0.3 sec
and 9.5 +/- 0.3 sec (40-1000 keV), respectively.

The ground-processed light curve is available at

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at Waseda University.
