Magnetic and Electric Field data from Dynamics Explorer 2

This home page provides listing and plotting of 0.5-sec. averaged magnetic and electric field vectors from NASA's DE-2 spacecraft (309-1012 km altitude, 89.9 deg inclination, 98 min orbital period) taken between August 15, 1981 and February 16, 1983.
These ASCII-format data are placed at SPDF's anonymous FTP site ftp://spdf.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/data/de/de2/magnetic_electric_fields_vefi_magb/dc_500ms_ascii/ At the following link a user can find the detailed descriptions of the experiment, data processing, format, etc.,
NoteThe geomagnetic and electric field data are given in SPaCecraft(SPC) coordinate system (X-along S/C velocity vector, Y-up, [s/c normal attitude], Y-down,[s/c inverted attitude]).
