The Fluxgate-Searchcoil Merged (FSM) Magnetic Field Data Product for MMS

Academic Article

Abstract

  • The Fluxgate-Searchcoil Merged (FSM) data product for the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission is created by combining the level-2 science quality data from the fluxgate and searchcoil magnetometers into a single level-3 data product. The merging method involves noise floor and calibration parameters determined both on the pre- and post-flight. Here, we describe the statistical inter-calibration process as well as the merging filter.
