Analysis Software for Solar Physics

SolarSoft is a set of integrated software libraries, databases, and system utilities which provides a "common" programming and data analysis environment for Solar Physics. The SolarSoftWare (SSW) system is built from Yohkoh, SoHO, TRACE, HESSI, SDAC and Astronomy libraries and draws upon contributions from many members of those projects. It is primarily an IDL based system, although some instrument teams can and do integrate executables written in other languages. Detailed information can be found in a series of Web pages mirrored from Solar UK Research Facility - these include pages mirrored from Lockheed-Martin (Palo Alto, California) and elsewhere.

It is possible to install all or part of the SolarSoft tree - it is an extensive tree and a complete installation requires a lot of disk space. If you are only interested in the Yohkoh analysis software, request only that part of the tree.
