Space Physics Data Facility (SPDF) is the NASA active and permanent archive for non-solar heliophysics data (solar data at SDAC), per the NASA Heliophysics Science Data Management Policy. SPDF is a project of the Heliophysics Science Division (HSD) at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. SPDF also provides multi-project, cross-disciplinary access to data to enable correlative and collaborative research across discipline and mission boundaries with present and past missions. SPDF maintains the SSCweb database of spacecraft orbits, the OMNIweb cross-normalized database, and the Common Data Format (CDF) self-describing science data format and associated software.

News & Announcements

January 2022: The ICON Level 2 data products (in netCDF files) for MIGHTI, IVM, FUV and EUV are available via SPDF HTTPS and in CDAWeb. Likewise, the MAVEN Level 2 data products (in CDF files) for STATIC, SWIA, SWEA, and SEP are available via SPDF HTTPS and in CDAWeb.

October 2021: The Parker Solar Probe (PSP) data have been extended to June 2021 (for FIELDS) and July 2021 (for SWEAP and ISOIS), which covers all of Orbit 8, including Encounter 8 with perihelion in April 2021. The FIELDS and SWEAP data have updated quality flags. Because EPI-Lo species identification tables were updated on 14 June 2021, the ion composition (IC) files in this release have added the variables related to N and Ne count rates, although they are not populated yet.

The MMS Level 2 data products are available via SPDF HTTPS and all data sets are available in CDAWeb. The range of publicly available MMS data will continue to be updated weekly.
