IVM reprocessed for 2020 - 2021

Includes every day with a conjugate maneuver

Dr. Thomas Immel 0 842

A number of IVM data are reprocessed on days between Feb 7, 2020 and Dec 22, 2021 where conjugate observation periods are present. The long list of these data is noted below. This correctly flags the IVM data mid-manuever to be good. It is recommended that if one is interested in data obtained during these short periods of time that you work with the latest revision of the data where the data quality flag is correct. Watch for timestamps reflecting the reprocessing date in February 2022 and an increase in the revision number over previously available data. Zip files containing these data will be published by Feb 14.

Mission Operations Update #7 - New Plasma Velocity products

IVM data now at version 5

Dr. Thomas Immel 0 718

New IVM Level 2 data (Version 5 of Product 2.7) are now available. This update improves the running correction for observed bias, using a measurement window that extends days into the future to inform the correction. As such, the data are released several weeks behind other products (2.2 and 2.4 for example) We recommend that users migrate to these products (available on the ICON FTP site) and review the documentation available here.
