How to Search the Jove Archive

There are two ways of viewing the contents of the Jove archive.
  1. The Calendar Interface
  2. The Direct Display Listeing

1. The Calendar Interface

The typical means of exploring the data holdings of the Radio Jove Archive is through the calendar interface (Fig. 1). This provides a quick view of what types of objects were observed and are available each day (Jupiter, Sun, Galactic, Background, etc.).


Figure 1. The Calendar View enables the user to see the holdings of the archive by day and by type of data available each day. In this example, for February 2017, almost every day has radio observations of either Jupiter, the Sun, or the Galactic Background. February 19th has observations made of all three.

Figure 2 illustrates what is available when clicking on the Jupiter icon on February 19th, 2017. The display lists the types of data (images, Radio-SkyPipe or RSS files, sound files, etc.) for that object that are available for download and some details about the data (who took the data, what time, etc.). In Figure 2, there are 6 records containing Jupiter data, most of these records include both an image and Radio-SkyPipe or RSS data.

2. Direct Display Listing

Let's say you wanted to search for all of the Jupiter data available between February 1st, 2017 and March 30, 2017. You can edit the URL at the top of your browser window to change the date range and the object you wish to search. The "sortdate1=" is followed by a date string that you can edit. February 1st, 2017 would be written 201702010000 and "sortdate2" is followed by another date string. March 30th, 2017 would be written 201703300000. At the end of the URL is the search string "STRING=" which would be followed by Jupiter, if that's the object you want to search. Figure 3 shows a portion of the full display of records. To run the search yourself click on the link below
