Data Processing and Analysis

During the course of the project, following data processings and analysis methods have been newly developed/investigated. They can be applicable also for other current sheet studies including for future missions
  • Off-set determination of the magnetic field normal (to the tail current sheet) using data from electron drift instrument (EDI) and flux gate magneto (FGM).
