JUNO-Ground-Radio Observations Support

Friday 8 January 2016, by Baptiste Cecconi

The JUNO-Ground-Radio team is grouping all major radio decametric observatories in support of the JUNO mission. It is lead by P. Zarka at LESIA, co-Investigator of the JUNO mission.

JUNO-Ground-Radio will provide access to data acquired on the following instruments:

This will ensure a very good temporal coverage of the decametric Jovian radio emissions. A planning tool has been set up to manage the coordinated observations.

The data will be shared among the team and to the community using VO standards. To ensure this interoperability, the data have a common formatting in CDF. Data reader software is also provided to help scientific use of the data (including JUNO/Waves data).
