K15 EUV Plasmapause Database











DESCRIPTION OF K15 EUV PLASMAPAUSE DATA
As described in Katus et al. [2015], these data were automatically extracted from 5+ years of IMAGE EUV He+ density data. Each ZIP file opens up to a text file. Each text file contains a list of plasmapause L values. Each row is a different date / time. Each column is a different MLT bin.

- ACKNOWLEDGEMENT and POC
These data are open to the community to use. However, please contact Roxanne Katus (rkatus @ emich.edu) before presenting or publishing these data.

- DOWNLOAD PLASMAPAUSE DATA
Files are available here and at Southwest Research Institute in ZIP-compressed format.
There is one ZIP file for each calendar year of data. When uncompressed, each ZIP opens to a text file whose contents are described above. Files are available in two MLT resolutions: 0.5 MLT-hour (coarse) and 0.1 MLT-hour (fine).
