The German Cluster Data Centre gets the raw data of the 4 Cluster satellites from ESOC on CD-ROMs. It generates two datasets of physical parameters for the EDI and RAPID instruments.
The processed data products have to be validated by the PIs.
The PP/SP data products for the other Cluster instruments are obtained form the other national data centres (NDCs) by a 'DCtoDC' data exchange system which is part of the Cluster Data Management System (CDMS).
To give a quick overview on data from all experiments, GCDC produces summary plots for each day of the mission.
Two web-based interfaces are provided for data access and data analysis.
