Test search of Cassini/UVIS data

21 May 2019

In the frame of a research project funded by the Plas@par laboratory of excellence driven by Sorbonne Universit├ęs, Fabiola Magalhaes started late 2018 to develop a database of Cassini/UVIS processed auroral observations of Saturn at Observatoire de Paris with the help of the Cassini/UVIS team (courtesy to Wayne Pryor and Emilie Royer). A test database of UVIS Far-UV observations (corresponding to level 2 calibrated data, including quicklooks and standard fits files of datacubes) acquired on 14 Feb. 2016 is now browsable.

Updated Jupiter dataset in support to Juno

08 Mar 2019

The HST database has been recently significantly completed with :
- raw public observations acquired in support to Juno in 2017-2018, complementing the campaign : Jupiter, Nov. 2016-Sep. 2018 (STIS, 137 images, 12 spectra) ;
- sequenced 100-s long exposures built from a subset of these images ranging Juno perijoves 2 to 12 enabled by the STIS time-tagged mode (NB : specific request of sequencing can be dealt with on demand) ;
- polar projections of this subset of images organized as a function of SIII longitude on top of which was superimposed the Juno magnetic footpath (during the HST exposure) using the most recent (JRM09) magnetic field model and magnetic markers of the footprint of the galilean satellites.

Interactive use of Spectra

24 Jul 2018

The search interface has been updated so that spectroscopic data can now be sent online to the Cassis software via the SAMP protocol to interactively work with them. To do so, launch the Cassis software first and click on the link "Cassis" available at the bottom of any HST spectroscopic data product.
