XMMPUBLIC - XMM-Newton Public Archive of U.S. Observations
Notice that Guest Observer (GO) observations which have non-US Principal Investigators (PIs) are not presently available in the HEASARC Archive, and hence are not listed in this table, even after their official public date (given in the public_date parameter in the Browse XMMLOG table, q.v.). Such observations, however, should be available in the ESA XMM Science Archive at http://xmm.esac.esa.int/xsa/ to which anyone seeking such datasets should refer.
XMM ODF Basic Data: This is a gzipped TAR file of the basic data files. XMM Processing Documentation: This category contains the Scientific Validation Report in PDF and PostScript formats, as well as the .ASC Pipeline Report file which includes such basic information as the target name, PI name, and other basic observatin information. XMM Pipeline Products: This is a collection of TAR files, containing the processed output of the XMM Processing Pipeline. The following a table of the individual TAR files and a description of the contents of each file.

A unique XMM-Newton observation identifier.
The XMM-Newton proposal number to which the observation belongs.
The name of the target of the XMM-Newton pointing.
The nominal right ascension of the XMM-Newton pointing, in the requested equinox. Notice that the originating table contained the position in equinox J2000 with RA given to a precision of 0.01 seconds of time.
The nominal declination of the XMM-Newton pointing, in the requested equinox. Notice that the originating table contained the position in equinox J2000 with declination given to a precision of 0.1 arcseconds.
The galactic longitude of the XMM-Newton pointing.
The galactic latitude of the XMM-Newton pointing.
The duration of the observation in seconds.
The start time of the observation in UT. Notice that the originating table gave the start time given to a precision of 0.01 seconds.
The XMM-Newton revolution number in which the observation occurred, i.e., the number of 48-hour orbits which had elapsed since the launch of XMM-Newton.
The principal investigator of the observation.
The date in which the data was processed.
