Arase(ERG)Satellite Observation Data

Rules of the Road

If you have any questions on the data and procedures, please contact the ERG Science Center at ergsc-help [at] isee.nagoya-u.ac.jp

  1. Users of all level of scientific products from the ERG/Arase project should contact instrument PI team(s), Project Manager (PM), and Project Scientist (PS) before using the data for any presentation and publication. PI(s) / PM (Iku Shinohara, iku at stp.isas.jaxa.jp) / PS (Yoshizumi Miyoshi, miyoshi at isee.nagoya-u.ac.jp) may suggest potential coauthor(s) from the ERG/Arase project side for the presentation and publication. Some necessary articles suggested by the PI(s) should be cited.
  2. Users should always use the latest version of data files in CDF provided from the ERG science center for their data analysis, presentation and publications. Redistribution of the data files is strictly prohibited.
  3. Users should send presentation materials and papers including ERG/Arase data to instrument PI team(s), PM, and PS enough before presentation and paper submission, so that sufficient time is available for those responsible for the data to check if the data are properly processed/used and to get necessary comments back to the data users.
  4. Publications that use ERG (Arase) satellite data must cite the project overview paper (Miyoshi et al., Earth Planets Space, DOI:10.1186/s40623-018-0862-0, 2018a) and include the following statement in their Acknowledgements section:
    "Science data of the ERG (Arase) satellite were obtained from the ERG Science Center operated by ISAS/JAXA and ISEE/Nagoya University (https://ergsc.isee.nagoya-u.ac.jp/index.shtml.en, Miyoshi et al., 2018b(#))."
  5. The data version(s) and DOI(s) of the Arase and related ground-based data used in the paper must be identified in the Data Availability Statement or the Acknowledgments section, in accordance with the guidelines and/or recommended practices of the journal. If no specific guidelines are available, please include such statement, for example, in the Acknowledgements section,
    "The present study analyzed MGF-L2 8 sec spin-averaged data v01_01 (10.34515/DATA.ERG-06001), HEP-L2 omniflux data v03_01 (10.34515/DATA.ERG-01001), MEP-e-L2 omniflux data v01_01 (10.34515/DATA.ERG-02001), and Orbit L3 v02 data (10.34515/DATA.ERG-12001)"

How to cite a dataset in your paper?

    In the main text:
    "... In this study, we used Level-2 TOF data obtained by the MEP-i instrument (Yokota et al., 2017, 2019) and Level-2 spin-average magnetic field data obtained by the MGF instrument (Matsuoka et al., 2018a, 2018b). The Level-2 definitive orbit data (Miyoshi et al., 2018) were referred to for the satellite position. ..."
