Welcome to Substorm Zoo

Our mission is to provide the best-in-class tool for on-line time-series analysis. Substorm Zoo enables analysis of data sets in Substorm Zoo's database, but also from other sources.

The emphasis is on data that is of interest to the space science community, e.g., magnetometer measurements and satellites, but any kind of time-series data can be analyzed. The provided tools enable easy preliminary analyses, rapid data checks and comparisons of various data sets.

Substorm Zoo makes it is easy to identify and analyze events in the data. These events can then be shared to and discussed with other users to foster scientific collaboration. Substorm Zoo also provides a platform for tracking and analyzing current space weather conditions.

  • Online data analysis

    In Substorm Zoo, you can e.g. compare data sets. Discuss your results, and comment on the results of the other users.
  • Verified data

    Analyze verified data sets in your web browser.
  • Identify interesting events

    Identify interesting events, and share your event lists with collaborators.
  • Libraries of identified events

    Large libraries of identified events are available. Use these events to test your hypotheses.
  • Powerful analysis methods

    Use powerful analysis methods such as wavelet and spectral analysis without any programming.
  • Upload your own lists

    Upload your own event lists, or create new event lists from scratch.
  • Upload your own data

    Upload your own data sets and check it against available event sets.

Space weather tracking

Substorm Zoo can be used to track current Space weather. Dashboard collects a variety of data into a single view that enables quick assessment of current Space weather conditions.

Realtime data is shown as interactive charts, which can be analyzed. Images from a variety of sources can be viewed and movies can be played.

Reproducible science

You can automatically generate a lab notebook of your analysis, edit it, and add new entries. A lab notebook can include direct links and clickable charts of the data sets. This notebook can then be shared with other users of Substorm Zoo.

In other words, Substorm Zoo enables easily shared reproducible science.

Mobile-friendly data analysis

Substorm Zoo works in desktops, tablets and in mobile phones. You can share your science in your phone as well as in your desktop power station.

100 % free

The aim of the website is to help produce great science. The use is completely free, we do not charge for the use of Substorm Zoo anything now or in the future. There are no distractions in Substorm Zoo, just good old space science.

Any event list you mark will be yours. It will be kept confidential, unless you choose to share it. You will retain the rights to the event lists you create.

The website is called Substorm Zoo, because the aim is to present events in a variety of data series. In a sense, these events are the animals of magnetospheric wild life. Hence the zoo.

While we greatly appreciate the work of and the good people at the Galaxy Zoo, we are not affiliated with the Galaxy Zoo.

Join Substorm Zoo

If you think that Substorm Zoo would benefit your research, you are welcome to join Substorm Zoo! In Substorm Zoo you can test hypotheses on real data; share your science data sets, files, and articles in the Substorm Zoo; and discuss the results.

We believe that data analysis supported by social interaction (in short, social data analysis) is better than scientific data analysis without social interaction. That is why we created Substorm Zoo.
