HARPS Pipeline Processed Data Available through Phase 3

Published: 21 Oct 2014

The pipeline processed HARPS echelle data are now available as Science Data Products via the Phase 3 main and spectral query forms. The data consist of 1D spectra in the ESO/SDP standard format and tar files containing unaltered output of the HARPS pipeline (DRS v. 3.5). Please note that only the presentation of the data has changed; the scientific content remains the same.

The release covers the entire lifetime of HARPS (October 2003 - present). Newly acquired and processed data are included as soon as they become available. Note, however, that most of the new data is protected and for the duration of the proprietary period is only accessible by the PIs and their delegates.

HARPS polarimetry data are currently not part of this release and have to be obtained from the dedicated query form, as previously. It is anticipated that polarimetry data will be available through Phase 3 in the foreseeable future.

The format and content of the HARPS 1D data is described in more detail in the release notes. Instructions on how to read or display data in the ESO/SDP tabular data format can be found in the 1D spectrum data format help page.
