Introduction

An interface for the provision of the outputs of the HESPERIA real-time forecasting tools (HESPERIA REleASE, UMASEP 500), in both pictorial and textual form, was developed in the framework of the project.  In particular:

HESPERIA REleASE outputs

The HESPERIA REleASE forecasting scheme provides up to an hour warning time before the protons of 30-50 MeV arrive at Earth, using SOHO/EPHIN (v > 0.9 c) and near-relativistic ACE/EPAM (v <0.8 c) electron measurements. The stored outputs of HESPERIA REleASE include real-time data of electrons and the forecasted proton fluxes in 30, 60 and 90 minutes, as well as the corresponding plots. In addition, HESPERIA REleASE performs forecasts in retrospect, based on historical data. In both cases, the algorithm that is being used is the same. The difference is the data gaps, i.e. historical data have much less data gaps compared to the real-time ones.  Furthermore, virtual HESPERIA REleASE predictions for time periods prior to the initiation of the HESPERIA project (FROM January 1, 2009 TO December 31, 2016) can also be retrieved. The real time outputs start at January 1, 2017. All of the aforementioned outputs are stored in the HESPERIA database server and are available to the end users of HESPERIA.

UMASEP 500  outputs

UMASEP 500 makes real-time predictions for E>500 MeV Solar Energetic Particle (SEP) events. Both the graphical and textual outputs of the UMASEP forecaster are imported to the HESPERIA database server and are available to the end users of HESPERIA.

Short manual for the retrieval of the outputs from the forecasting tools real-time predictions [plots]

  • A user may select to retrieve forecasts [plots] from any of the forecasting tools, that have been stored in the HESPERIA database server in real-time.

  • In order to select a time stamp [date/time] for the plot retrieval, the user should make use of the To: option in the data retrieval interface form. The From: option is not being used for the retrieval.

Real time predictions [Plots]

  • A user may select to retrieve forecasts [plots] from any of the forecasting tools, that have been stored in the HESPERIA database server in real-time.
  • In order to select a timestamp [date/time] for the plot retrieval, the user should make use of the To: option in the data retrieval interface form. The From: option is not being used for the retrieval.

Real time predictions [Plots Slideshow]

  • A user may select to retrieve forecasts [plots] from any of the forecasting tools, that have been stored in the HESPERIA database server in real-time for a specific period in minutes (maximum allowed period is 2 days).

Predictions based on historical data [Plots]

  • A user may select to retrieve forecasts [plots] from the REleASE forecasting tool, based on historical data, stored in the HESPERIA database server.
  • In order to select a timestamp [date/time] for the plot retrieval, the user should make use of the To: option in the data retrieval interface form. The From: option is not being used for the retrieval.

Predictions based on historical data [Plots Slideshow]

  • A user may select to retrieve forecasts [plots] from the REleASE forecasting tool, based on historical data, stored in the HESPERIA database server for a specific period in days (maximum allowed period is 1000 days).

Predictions for all forecasting tools (real-time and historical) [textual]

  • A user may select any of the available options for the retrieval of data that are stored in the HESPERIA database server for a specific period in minutes (maximum allowed period is 2 days).
  • In order to select a timestamp [date/time] for the data retrieval, the user should make use of the To: option as well as the From: option in the data retrieval interface form.
  • The user retrieves the data [textual] as an ASCII [print on screen] and a .csv file [download]
