New Horizons SWAP Solar Wind Derived Characteristics


Abstract: This data set presents characteristics of the solar wind derived from the New Horizons Solar Wind Around Pluto (SWAP) experiment from observations obtained during cruise, Pluto encounter (excluding the period inside the Pluto system), and afterwards. The single data file the time information for a given pair of sweeps, original level 2 data file reference, the solar wind speed proton density, proton speed, proton temperature, proton dynamic pressure, proton thermal pressure, spacecraft position and speed in Heliographic Inertial (HGI), Heliocentric Aries ecliptic, and Heliographic (Carrington) coordinates.
