Data Access

We’re sad to report that the EVE MEGS-A / SAM data stream ended on Monday May 26, 2014 due to a power anomaly. Both SAM solar X-ray images and MEGS-A spectra (6-37 nm) are not available now. Historical MEGS-A and SAM data from May 1, 2010 to May 26, 2014 will remain available from the EVE web site.All the other EVE instruments are working well, ESP, MEGS-B, and MEGS-P. We will be working with the EVE science team to optimize the EVE observations with those instruments.

EVE Science Data Access – Routine Data Products

The Version 5 definitive products are now available (effective December 30, 2014).  Version 5 replaces version 4 and we encourage all users to switch to version 5 for their analyses. We have compiled a list of detailed version comparisons and validation. Additional new files are added daily to this site.  EVE began normal operations on April 30, 2010.

Science Data Access and Tools




Pre-generated Plots

  • Daily Plots – multi-page PDFs, selected quicklook plots as PNGs (EVEdaily_yyyydoy_mm_dd…)



  • Installation form for SolarSoft – includes new installations and upgrades to existing installations
  • The EVE SolarSoft package is standalone, and contains several useful functions for downloading/plotting/analyzing EVE data. Download this if you do not want the rest of solarsoft. If you already have EVE installed locally on SolarSoft, you do not need this.
  • EVE software detailed documentation at LMSAL
