Data Release

Parkes Pulsar Data

Data obtained using the Parkes pulsar system are made available two years after they were taken. Details of observations which fall into this category can be found in the summaries below. There is no Observatory-based archive, so access to the data should be negotiated with project PIs. PIs of projects may be found by looking up the Project ID in the proposal summary tables or by contacting Jessica Chapman

The Parkes Pulsar Multibeam Survey

Data and results from the pulsar multibeam survey are made available as follows:
  • Data on pulsars discovered in the survey are placed on the WWW at the time of acceptance of the paper announcing the discoveries, or 18 months after confirmation of the detection, whichever is first.
  • Raw data tapes from the pulsar survey are made available for copying two years after recording. Software for copying tapes to disk or other tapes will be provided.
Summaries of available data
  • Sorted by time (includes details on integration and sampling times, frequency, channel bandwidth and number of beams)
  • Sorted by Project ID
  • Sorted by Position
  • Sorted by Tape Number
  • For further information on the multibeam pulsar survey, please contact Dick Manchester, or Andrew Lyne.
