SPICE Data Release 2.0

SPICE consortium



Access to data:

This data pack contains Solar Orbiter/SPICE data recorded during:

We distribute both Level 2 (L2, calibrated) and Level 1 (L1, uncalibrated) files. However, scientists should use L2 and not L1 files for their research. L2 data take into account all the calibration parameters quantified at the time of the release. L1 files are only provided to investigate possible issues with the conversion from L1 to L2. The conversion software will eventually be released in SolarSoft. Users should contact the SPICE team in case they think they have a good reason to use L1 files.
