ViRBO (Virtual Radiation Belt Observatory) is one of the domain-specific virtual observatories in the NASA Heliophysics Data Environment[1] program. ViRBO provides access to metadata, data, visualizations, and services related to Earth's radiation belt. ViRBO also hosts web pages and presentation documents associated with radiation belt-related science meetings and workshops - see the Science Meetings list for more information.

The ViRBO project was discontinued in 2014 and these pages are no longer being updated. Feel free to contact if any links to information that you are interested in are broken.
