DATA - Best data yet from LINDA
This data set, showing plasma density, was captured during Orbit 97 on 17 december 1998 starting at about 15:29:00 UT. The measurement was done in real time as the Astrid-2 passed from dayside to nightside and then into the auroral oval. The plot clearly shows how the plasma density drops as the satellite passes from dayside to nightside. When Astrid-2 moves into the auroral oval the density fluctuations increases most significantly.
