This new data server only provides the final version of the MFE data reduced from original processing or re-processing. Please check data availablity and the gap list prior to your data request.

Plot


The magnetic field plots can be drawn in GSM, GSE, SM, FAC, and S/C coordinates at low (1 min) and high (6 sec) resolution and in S/C only at full resolution (8 sample/sec).

ASCII Listing


The magnetic field data can be listed in GSM, GSE, SM, FAC, and S/C coordinates at low and high resolution and in S/C only at full resolution. The dipole tilt angles can be listed at high and low resolution. The foot prints of Polar in GEO can be listed at high and low resolution.

Time Format
All data are displayed in UTC. (Note: Prior to June 2004, this data server used International Atomic Time (TAI) for data collected in 2000 and onward. TAI differs from UTC by fixed increments where a leap second occurs. On JAN 1 2000, a time in TAI could be converted to UTC by subtracting 32 seconds. For a table of conversions from TAI to UTC, click here).

Correction in Bz
The Bz data between February 2004 and April 2008 may be subject to having offsets of up to several nT. Please see here for details.

Data Availability (Low, High, and Full Resolution)


1 minute, 6 second, and 120/40 ms data currently are available for the following intervals:
    1996 MAR 16 00:00 - 2004 FEB 29 23:59
    2004 APR 01 00:00 - 2004 MAY 31 23:59
    2006 JUL 01 00:00 - 2008 APR 17 13:16* (need further correction)
Please view the data gaps list for a listing of days with no data.

Correlative Data


Correlative solar wind and IMF data from Wind and ACE and IMP8 magnetometers are also available for comparative analysis.
