Swarm Data Handbook
The purpose of the Swarm Product Data Handbook is to provide a detailed description of the Swarm Level 1b and Swarm Level 2 products distributed to the Swarm users. These products include Swarm magnetic field models, ionospheric and thermospheric products, and Precise Orbit Solutions including supporting information. The product handbook is intended to support the use of the Level 1b and Level 2 products for further processing or application.
Swarm L1b and L2 Data Access
Swarm Level 1b (L1b) and Level 2 (L2) data products are freely available by FTP to ESA-EO registered users. The FTP top-level structure is divided into the 'Level1b', 'Level2daily', and 'L2longterm' directories. Within the 'Level1b' and 'Level2daily' directories, the structure presents first the ‘Latest baselines' and ‘Entire_mission_data' folders, then a Simplified datatype list, and finally the satellite ID, if applicable. More detailed information can be found at https://earth.esa.int/web/guest/swarm/data-access.
Swarm Product Filename Extension
The Swarm filename extensions have been changed since 19 January 2017 (11:00 UTC) in order to rationalise the product's filename extensions. There are no changes to files which have already been disseminated. More detailed information can be found in Swarm news changes introduced in Swarm product filename extension.
