Swarm Alpha and Charlie: Magnetic field data regenerated from January 2018

07 April 2020

As anticipated on 12 February, for Swarm Alpha and Charlie only, the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) scaling that changes with time, i.e., s_t, needs to be slightly adjusted starting from 01 January 2018 onward.

To introduce this improvement in the Swarm Alpha and Charlie Magnetic field data, a regeneration of L1B MAGNET products has been performed for data from 01 January 2018 to 06 February 2020.

Please note that a File Counter increase has been introduced for all the L1B products regenerated.
