Swarm Charlie VFM anomaly from 18 to 28 June 2022

04 Jul 2022

Due to an anomaly registered on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board of Swarm Charlie, the magnetic field vector B_VFM y-component stored in MAGC_HR_1B and MAGC_LR_1B products is affected by some artefacts from 18 to 28 June 2022. Several small data gaps are present in all the magnetic vector B components stored in MAGC_CA_1B products during the same time frame.

Since the issue was related to an instrument anomaly, the data cannot be recovered.
