Science Objectives Summary
Measurement and analysis objectives of the fluxgate magnetometer.


Online Data
Polar MFE Interactive Data Display
Interactively display or retrieve Polar data in 1 minute, 6 second or 8 s/s resolutions.
Polar Orbit Plots
Interactively draw plot of Polar orbit.
Correlative data from the WIND, ACE and IMP8 spacecraft
1 minute averaged data from the WIND and ACE magnetometers and solar wind plasma analyzers and the IMP 8 magnetometer.


Timing Conventions
All data are tagged with Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Internal to its programs UCLA uses a time word that is the number of elapsed seconds since January 1, 2000. This internal time word is in Ephemeris Time and accounts for leap seconds. It is our policy to time tag all averages of the data with their center times. For example the six-second data are 12-second averages tagged at their center times. The 120ms data are not averaged and are tagged at the time they were measured.

More information on systems of time can be found at the US Naval Observatory Website.
