The MASER (Measuring, Analyzing & Simulating Emissions in the Radio range) portal is offering access to a series of tools and databases linked to low frequency radioastronomy (a few kilohertz to a few tens of megahertz). Radio measurements in this spectral range are done with ground based observatories (for frequencies above the terrestrial ionosphere cutoff at 10 MHz) or from space based platforms (at low frequencies).
In this frequency range, the main radio sources are the Sun and the magnetized planets. Measurements of the low frequency electric and magnetic field fluctuations can also provide local plasma diagnostics and in-situ observations of plasma waves phenomena in the Solar Wind or in planetary environments.
