Swarm LP dataset gap on 28 Febuary 2018

16 May 2018

An EFI TII gain map calibration was performed on the Swarm Charlie satellite on 28 February 2018. The instrument was in calibration mode for two orbits.

Collision avoidance manoeuvre on Swarm Bravo on 16 April 2018

20 April 2018

An orbit collision avoidance manoeuvre was performed on Swarm Bravo on 16 April 2018 at 16:10 UTC for a duration of 96 secomds equivalent to a Delta V = 2 cm/s.

Swarm Charlie: VFM data gap from 13 to 16 April 2018

18 April 2018

Due to an anomaly that occurred on the VFM (Vector Field Magnetometer) on board Swarm Charlie, the VFM science data (at 50 Hz rate) was not received from 13/04/2018 19:18 UTC to 16/04/2018 09:21 UTC.

Swarm turns to whistlers and storms

13 April 2018

The batch of new results from ESA's Swarm mission has not only included the highest-resolution map of the magnetic field generated by Earth's crust and a map of the tiny magnetic signals from the oceans, but also, remarkably, some unexpected insight into lightning in the upper atmosphere and geomagnetic storms.

Swarm tracks elusive ocean magnetism

10 April 2018

The magnetic field is arguably one of the most mysterious features of our planet. ESA's Swarm mission is continually yielding more insight into how our protective shield is generated, how it behaves and how it is changing. Adding yet another string to its bow, Swarm is now tracking changes in the magnetic field produced in the oceans in more detail than ever before.

Magnetic Lithosphere Detailed

10 April 2018

This is the most detailed map ever of the tiny magnetic signals generated by Earth's lithosphere. The map, which is being used to understand more about Earth's geological history, is thanks to four years' of measurements from ESA's trio of Swarm satellites, historical data from the German CHAMP satellite and observations from ships and aircraft.

New Swarm Level 2 magnetic field models released

09 April 2018

The first models of the fourth release of Swarm magnetic field models are now available to users. The new models are based on improved Swarm magnetometer data (MAGx_LR_1B data products, baseline 05, version 03), covering the period from launch to the end of 2017, i.e. one additional year in comparison to the previous release.

Extended coverage of the Swarm 2 Hz EFI LP extended dataset

16 March 2018

We would like to inform the Swarm users that the 2 Hz Langmuir Probes extended dataset coverage has been increased in the ESA FTP server. The time coverage will be updated on a daily basis. Data now cover the time interval from 02 December 2013 to the current date - 14 days for all Swarm spacecraft.

Improved version of the Swarm 16 Hz faceplate dataset (v.0201) now available

16 March 2018

We are pleased to inform the Swarm users that an improved version of the Swarm 16 Hz faceplate density dataset (Product Baseline and File Counter 0201) is now available in the /Advanced/Plasma_Data/16_Hz_Faceplate_plasma_density folder on the Swarm FTP server.

Getting to know Steve

16 March 2018

Steve – a strange shimmering ribbon of purple light in the night sky – was discovered in 2016, but now, thanks to ESA's Swarm mission, more is known about this weird feature of the aurora.
