Herschel User Provided Data Products


The Herschel Science Archive contains products obtained by processing the observations data through an automatic processing pipeline. This corrects well a number of instrumental artifacts in an automatic fashion. The final products can, however, be significantly improved by processing them further, e.g. by means of the interactive analysis software tools available within HIPE or with the help of other external tools and/or user contributed software.

In particular, and as agreed at the time of submission of the Key Programme observing proposals, KP consortia are committed to deliver to the HSC the User Provided Data Products corresponding to the data obtained as part of the Science Demonstration Phase. In addition, on a best effort basis, they are also expected to continue contributing with additional User Provided Data Products corresponding to the results obtained as part of their core programmes as they become published in the refereed literature.

For the moment, this web page is intended to play the role of a User Provided Data Products repository by providing links to those external sites (mostly via ftp repositories hosted by the consortia delivering the data) containing data generated by different projects (and associated documentation), that may eventually be ingested into the Herschel Science Archive.
