FGM Caveat for Mission Extension PP/SP Data

Validated CSDS FGM magnetic field prime parameter data products are not available for the extended mission (from 2006-01-01) because reduced funding for the FGM team at Imperial College no longer allows the validation procedure to be supported. Unvalidated data products (UP) are available, but additional caution should be observed when using these products.

Unvalidated CSDS FGM spin resolution data might sometimes contain artefacts such as spikes (duration ~ 1 spin), or short rotations (few spins). Very occasionally the data contain many spikes over several hours. Please contact Elizabeth Lucek (e.lucek@imperial.ac.uk) for more information regarding possible artefacts in specific intervals of data.
