CASSIOPE/e-POP full data mirror on the ESA Swarm Dissemination Server
06 March 2019
The ESA Swarm Dissemination Server is now also hosting a mirror of the CASSIOPE/e-POP full data archive (past and current observations) in native format. These products are freely available under the /#CASSIOPE_e-POP directory by FTP/HTTPS anonymous browsing. Read a full description of the e-POP data set.
CASSIOPE is a Canadian satellite that carries the Enhanced Polar Outflow Probe (e-POP) science payload for the study of ionospheric plasma outflow, radio wave propagation, dynamic aurora processes, neutral atmosphere escape, and more. Launched in 2013 into an elliptical polar orbit (325 km x 1500 km at 81° inclination), e-POP is capable of high time-resolution measurements for investigation of the micro- and mesoscale physics of the ionosphere-magnetosphere-thermosphere system.
Since March 2018, CASSIOPE/e-POP mission is formally integrated into the Swarm constellation as the fourth element (Swarm-Echo) under ESA's Earthnet Third Party Mission Programme. The e-POP payload operations are currently focused on maximising the Swarm/e-POP scientific outcome, and there is an ongoing joint effort to develop new better calibrated products based on e-POP data.
The e-POP payload is a collaboration developed by six Canadian universities and companies and two international partners and is composed of the following experiments:

Ice is without doubt one of the first casualties of climate change, but the effects of our warming world are not only limited to ice melting on Earth's surface.
