Data Access Open Access Data Format
Measurements and Applications The MGF consists of dual, tri-axial fluxgate magnetometers mounted on an 80-cm carbon fibre boom for measurements of magnetic field perturbations to a precision of 0.0625 nanotesla, from which to infer small-scale field-aligned currents. The MGF is turned on an average of 20% of the time, following a schedule devised by the science team.
