Summary

The GEOS-1 and GEOS-2 spacecraft have sequentially covered the interval 1971–1981, The GEOS-1 orbit is excentric with apogee near 7RE, the GEOS-2 orbit is truely geostationary. The present paper addresses the availability of GEOS data to the interested scientific community and identifies time and location at which data have been acquired. It gives a brief description of the instruments involved, their origin and the format in which data from the different sources can be made available.
