CryoSat magnetometer data now available to support Swarm Sciences

05 July 2019

We are pleased to announce the new release of magnetic field data recorded by Fluxgate magnetometers operating on-board ESA's CryoSat mission.

New version of the Swarm Weekly Quality Report

01 July 2019

Starting from the week 8-14 April, a new version of the Swarm Quality Report will be introduced. The improvements of this new version consist in a shorter description of all the data quality controls with the aim to report only the most significant information.

Swarm Alpha: L1B data gap from 10 to 12 June 2019

17 June 2019

Due to a test performed on-board Swarm Alpha from 10 to 12 June 2019, the telemetry data retrieved from this spacecraft was not nominal.

Swarm Charlie: EFI data gap from 2 to 4 June 2019

10 June 2019

Due to an issue with the Electric Field Instrument on-board Swarm Charlie, no Langmuir Probe data are available from 2 June 2019 at 00:06 UTC to 4 June at 11:57 UTC.

8th Swarm Data Quality Workshop report published in EOS

27 May 2019

The eighth Swarm Data Quality Workshop was held at ESRIN (Frascati, Italy) from 8 to 12 October 2018. This workshop was instrumental in addressing the processing and use of Swarm data and defining a road map for the future.

Swarm Alpha: L1B ASM data gap from 13 to 20 May 2019

21 May 2019

We inform the Swarm users that from 13 to 20 May 2019, the ASM (Absolute Scalar Magnetometer) instrument on board Swarm Alpha was commanded in burst mode.

Swarm Alpha: EFI data gap on 12 May 2019

17 May 2019

We would like to inform Swarm users that an EFI/TII gain calibration map has been executed on 12 May 2019 onboard Swarm Alpha.

Tug-of-war drives magnetic north sprint

15 May 2019

As far as we know, Earth's magnetic north has always wandered, but it has recently gained new momentum and is making a dash towards Siberia at a pace not seen before. While this has some practical implications, scientists believe that this sprint is being caused by tussling magnetic blobs deep below our feet.

Significant improvements on Swarm Thermal Ion Imagers data

07 May 2019

The constant improvement in the strategies to operate the two Thermal Ion Imagers (TII) sensors on-board each Swarm spacecraft, defined by scientists and engineers in dedicated monthly TII anomaly review board meetings, allow a significant increase in TII data coverage, and a substantial improvement in TII data quality.

Swarm Charlie: data gaps from 28 Apr 2019

06 May 2019

We would like to inform Swarm users that an on-board anomaly occurring on Swarm Charlie caused data gaps on all L0, L1A and L1B data products from 28 April 2019 onwards.
