Public Data Access (last release on 15 Nov 2016)

Featured release

A new release is available related to searches for point-like sources of neutrinos using the IceCube detector. This release includes data from only the first year of data taking with the completed 86-string detector, taken between May 2011 and May 2012. The dataset consists of 138,322 neutrino candidates with reconstructed incoming directions from anywhere in the sky. The search did not identify a single source, but the sensitivity was significantly improved from both this additional year of data and the introduction of improved reconstructions compared to previous publications.

Data Use Policy

IceCube is committed to the goal of releasing data to the scientific community. The following links contain data sets produced by AMANDA/IceCube researchers along with a basic description. Due to challenging demands on event reconstruction, background rejection and systematic effects, data will be released after the main analyses are completed and results are published by the international IceCube Collaboration. During the construction phase of IceCube we expect that final data sets can be released within a few years after the data have been taken.
