Accessing and Exploitation of SDO data
Monday May 23, 2011
|The NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory mission, launched in February 2010, has
provided for more than a year images of the Sun with unprecedented details.
The SDO-AIA and SDO-HMI telescopes together produce 4k x 4k images at a rate
The STCE hosts the European hub for SDO data. It maintains a rolling archive
of the latest 6 months of data, as well as a long-duration, low cadence data
set, and a subset of the most frequently required events. The centre is
intended to provide real-time web access to the basic images in variable
resolution, and has high speed computing resources to generate composite and
transformed images in real-time.
The aim of this workshop is to
- present the computing and storage facilities
- present the various ways available for accessing the data (using IDL or
not). A hands-on session is foreseen to get familiar with those.
- present some examples of intensive exploitations using the compute cluster
- discuss further scientific exploitations of these data.
