SSHADE: Solid Spectroscopy Hosting Architecture of Databases and Expertise
SSHADE is an interoperable Solid Spectroscopy database infrastructure (www.sshade.eu) providing spectral and photometric data obtained by various spectroscopic techniques over the whole electromagnetic spectrum from gamma to radio wavelengths, through X, UV, Vis, IR, and mm ranges. The measured samples include ices, minerals, rocks, organic and carbonaceous materials... and also liquids. They are either synthesized in the laboratory, natural terrestrial analogs collected or measured in the field, or extraterrestrial samples collected on Earth or on planetary bodies: (micro-)meteorites, IDPs, lunar soils...
SSHADE contains a set of specialized databases from various European research groups and is developed under the European program "Europlanet 2020-RI" (H2020)* with the help of OSUG, CNRS/INSU and CNES. It is hosted by the OSUG data center / Université Grenoble Alpes, France.
(*) Europlanet 2020 RI has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N° 654208
