The ROSAT Results Archive Project

ROSAT Results Archive Web pages also available at: [MPE] [GSFC] [SAO] [Leicester Univ.]

The ROSAT Results Archive contains results (positions, count rates, hardness ratios, extent, and variability information) on some 100,000 objects detected in more than 5000 observations performed by ROSAT. The data have undergone a thorough screening and validation process, including an automatic screening and visual inspection of all ROSAT images. About 1700 ROSAT datasets were screened at AIP.

The project is conducted in collaboration with MPE, GSFC, SAO,and Leicester University.

A brief description of the ROSAT Results Archive Project can be found in: The ROSAT Results Archive.
