Swarm Alpha: VFM data gap from 18 to 19 December 2018
02 January 2019
Due to a science packet corruption which occurred on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board Swarm Alpha, the VFM science data (at 50 Hz rate) were not received from 18 December 2018 at around 18:13 UTC to 19 December 2018 at 16:46 UTC when the VFM was restarted. As a consequence, no L1B VFM data are available for this time window.
