C2D Data Deliveries

What is available?

C2D delivers images, source lists, and spectra.

Please note that when a Legacy team delivers enhanced data products to IRSA, the data must go through a quality assurance (QA) and ingestion process before being available through IRSA search engines, and this process does not happen instantaneously. Direct data access to a more recent delivery may contain errors that will be caught by the QA process; an IRSA search of an older delivery permits access to data that have passed the QA process.

Delivery information listed in reverse chronological order

Getting the original Spitzer data

All of the original Spitzer data for Legacy programs are released to the community as soon as they complete end-of-campaign reprocessing (there is no proprietary period). For general information about how to access our archive (and what to do with the data when you get in), please see Data Archive and Data Analysis & Tools.

To access data specifically from c2d, you can search by these program ids (pids):

  • pid 139 - coreplanets_cores
  • pid 172 - coreplanets_irs_first
  • pid 173 - coreplanets_stars
  • pid 174 - coreplanets_serpens
