NMDB status, a brief tutorial

Christian T. Steigies, Extraterrestrial Physics, Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics, Kiel University, Germany

Since 2008 the EU FP7 funded Neutron Monitor database (NMDB) is providing access to 1-minute neutron monitor data in real-time as well as different neutron monitor data products for the public. Over the years, several data products have disappeared or had to be disabled for security reasons, others have been extended or set up from scratch to make accessing the data easier for the user.

After an overview of the status of the NMDB, I will give an interactive tutorial on accessing real-time data from NMDB using python and pandas. We will use a Jupyter Notebook that runs in your webbrowser without you having to install additional software on your computer. If you want to participate in this excercise, please mention this in your registration email so that we can set up an account for you in our JupyterHub server.
