Catalogues

Thursday 18 March 2021, by Baptiste Cecconi

MASER provides access to several Solar System radio emission catalogues: Solar bursts, Jupiter or Saturn emissions.

Time-Frequency Radio Emission Catalogue

A time-frequency radio emission catalogue format (TFCat) has been developed to describe and distribute time-frequency events, patches or regions in the time-frequency domain. Inspiring from the GeoJSON format, it allows to describe several types of features (Point, Line, Polygon, etc). A python library is available for creating and loading TFCat files.

Catalogues Available

HELIO Feature Catalog

The HELIO Feature Catalogue service was developed during the FP7 HELIO project. Among other catalogues, it contains a Solar Type II radio Burst catalog which is built on low frequency radio dynamic spectra received from 3 spacecraft (WIND, STEREO-A et and STEREO-B).

Historical Jovian NDA Radio Burst Catalogs (1978-1983)

A series of Jovian radio emission catalogs were published by Leblanc et al. (1981 and 1983) during the Voyager era. These catalogs were available only as low quality typewriter tables. They have been reprocessed to put them back online in a more usable form (using onlineocr.net). The dataset are now available online as tabular data:

  • Leblanc, Y., et al. 2020 A catalogue of Jovian decametric radio observations from January 1978 to December 1979 (Digitised version) [Data set]. PADC. https://doi.org/10.25935/GXZF-ZT33
  • Leblanc, Y., et al. 2020 A catalogue of Jovian radio observations from January 1980 to December 1981 (Digitised version) [Data set]. PADC. https://doi.org/10.25935/RAS0-ER93
  • Leblanc, Y., et al. 2020 A catalogue of Jovian decametric radio observations from January 1982 to December 1984 (Digitised version) [Data set]. PADC. https://doi.org/10.25935/403B-VA51
  • Leblanc, Y., et al. 2020 A catalogue of Jovian decametric radio observations from January 1985 to December 1987 (Digitised version) [Data set]. PADC. https://doi.org/10.25935/GH59-PY87
  • Leblanc, Y., et al. 2020 A catalogue of Jovian decametric radio observations from January 1988 to December 1990 (Digitised version) [Data set]. PADC. https://doi.org/10.25935/CMQB-JJ10

Jupiter NDA Radio Catalogue (1990-2016)

Marques et al 2016 studied 26 years of NDA Jupiter observations and derived a catalogue of Jovian radio bursts. This catalogue is available at CDS in Vizier.

Saturn Faraday Rotation Patches (2004-2017

The data set contains the catalogue of Faraday Rotation patches identified in Saturn Kilometric Radiation (SKR) observations by Cassini/RPWS/HFR, and published in Taubenschuss et al. (2021).
