A team of researchers, supported under ESA's Basic Activities, has recently investigated a resourceful new method of monitoring space weather. They utilised the data from the Swarm and GOCE Earth Explorer missions, and from LISA Pathfinder to investigate whether platform magnetometer data could also be used for space weather diagnostics.
Modelling of non-gravitational forces such as drag or solar radiation pressure requires knowledge of the thermo-optical properties and geometry of the outer surfaces of the spacecraft. These are now provided in a memorandum and can be accessed here.

All validated Swarm Level 1b and Level 2 products are now freely accessible to all users via anonymous FTP or any HTTP browser.
ESA has started a process to improve the Earth Observation data distribution services, aiming at facilitating access to data and information for the end users, initially by shortening the access path and reviewing authentication and authorisation processes.
