Contributed Data Sets in the Exoplanet Archive

This page lists individual data sets that have been contributed by the community and are currently available via the NASA Exoplanet Archive. For information on how to contribute data, see How to Contribute Data. If you contributed data but do not see them listed here, we apologize and will happily add entries if you submit a ticket.

Radial Velocity Time Series

We have worked with J. Wright's group at Penn State to include radial velocity time series from the published literature. A wget script for these files is on the Bulk Data Download page in the Time Series Data table. The individual files are also available in the Overview pages for the relevant stars.

Additionally, we offer the RV curves obtained by the MARVELS team described in Thomas et al. 2016. The full data set is in this .tar file; individual RV files are also available in the Overview Pages for the relevant stars.

Data from a study of the completeness of precision radial velocity surveys of nearby stars for planetary companions by Howard & Fulton 2016 are available, including the RV time series, the completeness contour plots and the completeness contour data. The individual files are also available in the Overview pages for the relevant stars.

Amateur Light Curves

The Exoplanet Archive serves 540 light curves for stars currently known to host exoplanets. These light curves of exoplanet transits were obtained by amateur astronomers from around the world and collected by B. Gary of the Amateur Exoplanet Archive. Read the detailed summary of these data and retrieve the files using the retrieval script on the Bulk Data Download page in the Time Series Data table.

Optical Stellar Spectra

Optical stellar spectra are available for both planet and non-planet host stars. There is a retrieval script to download all optical data listed below; as well as scripts to download each data set individually; see the Time Series Data table on the Bulk Data Download page. The data were contributed by the following groups:

Infrared stellar spectra are available for both planet and non-planet host stars. The combined data set retrieval script is on the Bulk Data Download page in the Time Series Data table. The data were contributed by the following groups:

Microlensing Light Curves

Microlensing light curves for several confirmed planets have been provided by the authors, including D. Bennett, A. Udalski, Y. Tiannis, C. Han, D. Suzuki and J. Yee. The individual files are available in the Overview pages for the relevant stars. The combined data set retrieval script is on the Bulk Data Download page in the Time Series Data table.

Ground-based Transit Surveys

All data from ground-based transit surveys have been provided by those individual groups.
