Merged 1-min Magnetic field, Plasma, and Trajectory data from IMP-8

This data set was created at GSFC/SPDF in 2005 (and updated with new version 3 magnetic field data in 2009), using as input both the "15.36 sec" magnetic field data set and the "1 min" MIT plasma data set. It has one record per minute, regardless of whether there were field and/or plasma data for that minute. There are no plasma parameters available when the spacecraft is on the magnetosphere side of the magnetopause.

Users of this 1 min data set are urged to consult documentation about the input data sets at Magnetic field:

This 1 min data set is also accessible as monthly ASCII files from SPDF FTP site
where a detailed description of the data is also available.

Time span of data set: 1974-01-01 2000-12-31
