Welcome to DARTS/Hinode


About Hinode

Hinode is the third Japanese Solar astronomical satellite (following Hinotori and Yohkoh) launched on September 23, 2006 by the M-V rocket. Hinode will reveal heating mechanism and dynamics of the active solar corona via unprecedented quality observations with the on-board Solar Optical Telescope (SOT), X-ray Telescope (XRT) and EUV Imaging Spectrometer (EIS).

Solved the problem which cannot display the quick look images in "Hinode Data Center".


Let us stress that the entire Hinode operation relies on public funding, and it is extremely important for us to produce outputs that are visible and accountable, in continuing the current stable and fruitful operation which we hope the scientific community enjoys. As an attempt to ensure this, we would like to present two sets of rules/guidelines.

The first set concerns what you do when you write papers using Hinode data. Please consider this set as rigid rules that you are expected to follow, although there is no way of enforcing them. They are:
  1. When you write a paper, please inculde the standard acknowledgment sentences to Hinode, which are found "Acknowledgement to Hinode".
  2. Please also refer to the relevant instrumentation papers listed here.
  3. When your paper is accepted, or when you make a presentation at a conference or hold a press conference on your result, please let us know by sending email to publ_hinode (at) hinode.nao.ac.jp. Details are found at "Entry to Hinode publication list"
The second set concerns what we would very much like you to do when you use Hinode data. They are:
  1. Tell relevant instrument PI(s) what you are working on.

This is partly to our benefit, particularly in protecting exsiting and potential Ph.D. thesis projects. Also, if your project coincides with one that core team members are working on, that can lead to a fruitful collaboration. This will also work as a way for you to gain better insights into Hinode data. "Hinode Doctor/Master Thesis" are found here, that contains registration form.

Acknowledgement to Hinode

When you publish your work on Hinode data, we would like to ask you to acknowledge the Hinode mission as follows.

Hinode is a Japanese mission developed and launched by ISAS/JAXA, with NAOJ as domestic partner and NASA and STFC (UK) as international partners. It is operated by these agencies in co-operation with ESA and NSC (Norway).

We would be grateful if you could place more detailed acknowledgement.

Hinode is a Japanese mission developed and launched by ISAS/JAXA, collaborating with NAOJ as a domestic partner, NASA and STFC (UK) as international partners. Scientific operation of the Hinode mission is conducted by the Hinode science team organized at ISAS/JAXA. This team mainly consists of scientists from institutes in the partner countries. Support for the post-launch operation is provided by JAXA and NAOJ (Japan), STFC (U.K.), NASA (U.S.A.), ESA, and NSC (Norway).

Entry to Hinode publication list

On publication of your papers using Hinode data, it would be particularly helpful if you could inform us the reference so that we can keep the record of brilliant works on Hinode. Please send the reference to: publ_hinode (at) hinode.nao.ac.jp.
