Hinode Science Data Centre Europe
Welcome to the Hinode Science Data Centre Europe, a joint project
between Norway and the European Space Agency (ESA). The data
centre is run by the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the
University of Oslo on behalf of the Norwegian Space Centre (NSC).
Hinode (Sunrise in Japanese) is a project to study the Sun, led by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) in collaboration with NASA, the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC), and the European Space Agency (ESA). Hinode is equipped with three solar telescopes (EIS, SOT and XRT), and was launched from Uchinoura Space Center on 22 September 2006 at 21:36 UT.
We now have IRIS level 2 data!This means we are no longer a single-mission archive. The process of incorporating IRIS data into the archive has been an eye-opener - we think we have learned a lot from the many mistakes that became obvious during the process. The experience will be very useful for the future inclusion of other solar observations in the archive.
We now also have BIFROST and MURaM simulation data
There is another IRIS archive at Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory (LMSAL), which we think has some nice features that we hope to incorporate in our archive at some point. For details about the IRIS mission, go to iris.lmsal.com.
