EUVE: HEASARC and Other Archives
Direct access via ftp to the HEASARC EUVE holdings: the main
in the form of FITS-format events files is contained in the data/fits
sub-directory, while the data files from the 6
CD-Roms that were issued by CEA are available in the data/euvecd
sub-directory. Other data sub-directories contain All-Sky Survey,
scan-mode, and engineering-mode data. Also, an image of the CEA ftp
area as it was just prior
to its closing in 2001 is available in the
- The EUVE
Stellar Spectral Atlas" of Craig, N., Abbott, M., Finley, D., Jessop, H.,
Howell, S.B., Mathioudakis, M., Sommers, J., Vallerga, J.V., and Malina, R.F.
which was published in 1997 in ApJS, vol. 113, pp. 131 et seq. They comprise
FITS and PostScript versions of 95 bright stellar sources observed by EUVE,
grouped by the type of source, together with some supporting material.
- The recommended way to find the EUVE primary datasets is to
Browse (Search) the HEASARC EUVE Archive and source catalogs. The
following EUVE tables are available in Browse:
- The master catalog of the EUVE Spectrometer pointed datasets archive
(EUVEMASTER): its entries have the data files associated with them
- The EUVE Right Angle Program, 2nd Catalog (EUVERAP2)
- The Second EUVE Source Catalog (EUVECAT2)
- The EUVE Bright Sources Catalog (EUVEBSL)
- The EUVE/(ROSAT) XRT All-Sky Catalog of Faint EUV Sources (EUVEXRTCAT)
- The 4-filter EUVE All-Sky Survey maps are available via the HEASARC's
- In July 2 1998, a guide to the EUVE
Science Archive Data Products was put together by the CEA staff.
This document contains a summary description of the EUVE Science
Archive pointed products. It is meant to be used as a supplement to
the older EUVE Software Users' Guide and EUVE Data Products Guide.
The new Science Archive Data Products Guide is available
in both PDF format
(129 Kb) and PostScript
format (965 Kb).
- The Multimission
Archive at Space Telescope (MAST) has been designated as an
alternative (to the HEASARC) EUVE
Archive, with the prime responsibility of maintaining the existing
IRAF-based analysis software and acting as an interface for optical
and ultraviolet astronomers.
Information on the EUVE mission, instruments, operation and data
reduction and analysis techniques is available at their website, which
contains much of the material that was available at the Center for
Extreme-ultraviolet Astrophysics website (CEA) before it closed in 2001.
National Space Sciences Data Center (NSSDC) has been designated
as the `deep' archive that will service requests for large amounts
(Gigabytes or more) of EUVE Science Archive data and for some or all
of the raw telemetry (Level 0) data.
