***** EFW Data Update (Nov. 23rd, 2015): The EFW team is adjusting the current biasing of the V1 probe. The V1 probe went out of biasing as of 10/31/2015 and is not accurate. The EFW data flow is being adjusted to compensate for this. The EFW spinfits now use the 34 booms instead of the 12 sensors. The 32 ssample/s despot E-field data has been replaced by electric field data from the 34 booms and is presented in a coordinate system rotating with the spacecraft. The EFW team is conducting bias sweeps to attempt to correct for the biasing problem on V1. *****
All scientific data products for this mission will be made quickly and publicly available. Important information on the contents of the EFW CDF files, their interpretation, error sources, coordinate systems, updates on data processing, and hints on how to interact successfully with the EFW team are available on the EFW Users Required Reading page. This policy applies to both non-RBSP-affiliated users and RBSP-affiliated users, and should be reviewed before accessing the data below.
A detailed description of the RBSP/EFW instrument and available data quantities can be found in the RBSP EFW Instrument Paper.
