New Horizons SWAP Pluto Encounter Solar Wind Derived Characteristics


Abstract: This data set presents characteristics of the solar wind derived from data taken by the New Horizons Solar Wind Around Pluto (SWAP) instrument during the Pluto encounter. This archive contains two data products. Each product compiles the CODMAC level 2 source data used, the solar wind speed, proton density, proton speed, proton temerature, proton dynamic pressure, proton thermal pressure, spacecraft position and speed. The two product files differ in that one is in Heliographic Inertial (HGI) coordinates and the other is in Pluto centric J2000 and IAU J2000 coordinates.
