Solid Spectroscopy Hosting Architecture of Databases and Expertise
SSHADE is a project of a set of databases on solid spectroscopy with:
- a common ‘solid spectroscopy’ interface
- a common Import/Search/Visualization/Export engine
- a common fundamental database (species, publications, objects, band list, ...)
- a set of Spectra databases: one per partner group (GhoSST is one of them)
- SSHADE will also host all data collected during the Transnational Access (TA) program of EPN2020-RI to the ‘Cold Surfaces Spectroscopy Facility‘ at IPAG
The SSHADE databases will cover:
- laboratory, field, airborne as well as simulated and theoretical spectral data
- with their corresponding spectra and their various types products (ex: transmission, absorbance, absorption coefficient, optical constants, band list)
- for many different types of solids: ices, snows and molecular solids, minerals, rocks, inorganic solids, natural and synthetics organic and carbonaceous matters, meteorites and other cosmomaterials, ...
- with a wide range of measurement technics: transmission, bidirectional reflection, Raman, fluorescence, ...
- over a wide range of wavelengths: from X-rays to millimeter wavelengths (can be extended up/down)
It is based on the Solid Spectrocopy Data Model (SSDM) and the GhoSST database developments (Europlanet + VAMDC 2009-2012).
The SSHADE development and its associated SSDM extension are part of two Work Packages (VESPA JRA and VA) of an European e-infrastructure program, Europlanet 2020-RI, for Horizon 2020 program (started 1st september 2015 for 4 years).
SSHADE is planned to open to the public at end of January 2018 (delivery of the SSHADE infrastructure) while the partners will continue to feed their database with new data.
