Cluster Science Data System

The Scandinavian Data Centre (SDC) is located at the Alfvén Laboratory at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. It is one of the National Data Centres of the Cluster Science Data System (CSDS), a distributed system designed to supply the scientific community with overview data from the Cluster mission. The participating Data Centres are:

An overview of CSDS may be found in the CSDS Users Guide, and other CSDS documents. The data products of the CSDS are the PPDB (Prime Parameter Data Base), the SPDB (Summary Parameter Data Base) and the SP (Summary Plots). SDC is responsible for supplying the CSDS data products to the Scandinavian scientific community via the CDMS (Cluster Data Management System) web interface. Latest results from Cluster are accessible from the Cluster Quicklook page.

In order to access Cluster PPDB or SPDB data you will need a CDMS account. Cluster co-investigators have access to the PPDB (spin-averaged data from all 4 s/c), other users have access to the SPDB (1-minute-averaged data from one s/c). To obtain an account, please send an e-mail to
