FRIPON Data release

Data release date: 2021-06-25

From 2021 onwards the FRIPON consortium will deliver on a yearly basis a catalogue listing the physical and orbital properties of the fireballs observed by the network.
For this first release (FRIPON DR1), we have chosen to deliver only highly reliable data, namely from events that were observed by at least 6 cameras. This represents >500 events out of 5000 detections.
The data can be downloaded in various formats (XLSX, CSV or PDF).
It is possible to select the events with all the output data of the calculation pipeline (initial mass, speed, etc...) with a criterion for each.
For example, Count >10 will provide all events seen by at least 10 cameras and Eccentricity 0<>0.1 will provide all events with an eccentricity in the [0-0.1] range.
Extend "how to use this table" to know more about filtering possibilities.

Specifically, the catalogue provides :
• The orbital parameters and the error on their determination
• Initial and final sizes
• Initial and final masses
• Errors on sizes and masses
• Enthalpy (energy of dislocation)
• Ve, A, B: pre-atmospheric speed , drag and ablation parameters (Jeanne et al, 2019)
• Gamma, Alpha, Beta : drag and ablation parameters (Gritsevich et al, 2006)
• Initial and final altitude
• Initial and final speed
• Initial and final position (Longitude, Latitude)
• Radiant
• Length
• Duration

From 2022 onwards, the release will also provide:
• Photometric data
• Data from events seen with less than 6 cameras

You can use one of the following math operators before typing a float number as search, per column.
= (equal) < (lower) <= (lower or equal) > (greater) >= (greater or equal) != (not equal)
Math search accepts both exponent as well as non exponent notations. Use optional + (default) or - followed by e
Interval work by typing <> (between) or <!> (not between) in the middle of two float numbers.
You can search ony empty values by typing null or ! null (not null).
Examples of valid math search:
-1<!>2     !=0     >=1.25e-19     1.25E+21<>1.25e19

Default search use contain operators, for all other search operation including text search.
