Swarm Alpha: VFM data gap from 29/04/2017 to 01/05/2017

04 May 2017

Due to an anomaly that occurred on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board Swarm Alpha, the VFM science data (at 50 Hz rate) was not received from 29/04/2017 11:22 UTC to 01/05/2017 08:05 UTC.

As a consequence, the production of L1B Magnetic and Plasma data and of Level 2 - Cat 2 FAC, IBI and EEF data will be affected for this time window.
