The ASIM Science Data Centre welcomes new users and proposals for collaboration

  • Time to read 1 minute

Dear Colleagues,
 
The ASIM project (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11214-019-0592-z) is now open for international scientific collaborations and we invite you to join us.
 
The data that are available for download are optical and UV data of the MMIA instruments (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11214-019-0593-y), starting from the early summer of 2018. A table of consolidated TGF events seen by MXGS (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11214-018-0573-7) is planned to be released next month. GLD360 lightning data are also available. You can browse plots of the MMIA and MXGS instrument data at the ASDC website, which should allow you to determine if there are measurements of interest for you. You will not need a password for this.
 
To get access to the numerical data, you will need to  join our collaboration and receive a password. For this you must send us a short proposal describing your project and include contact info of the responsible scientist and of those in the group that need passwords. A template for the proposal can be found on the ASDC website (https://asdc.space.dtu.dk/). The responsible scientist is required to sign an agreement, included in the proposal template, on the use of the data. Additional information onASIM data formats, privacy policy,  news, publications etc. is also accessible at this URL, though some pages require password access.
 
There is no deadline for proposals. You may wait to submit until you see that there are interesting data for you.
 
Proposals should be submitted to [email protected] . Each proposal will be evaluated by the ASIM Science Facility Team.
 
Greetings from Torsten
