MGF Quick Look Plot


MGF Quick Look Plot

An MGF QL file is generated for each MGF turn-on session.

All panels are plotted with respect to Universal Time and CASSIOPE ephemeris, which includes geographic latitude (degrees), geographic longitude (degrees), altitude (km), magnetic latitude (degrees), and magnetic local time (hours)).

The top two panels show the Fourier power as a function of time and frequency for the outboard (top) and inboard (bottom) MGF sensors.

In the third panel is a plot of the total magnetic field for each magnetometer.

The bottom two panels plot the temperature of the sensors and the electronics cards for each magnetometer (top panel), as well as the voltage monitor deltas (bottom panel), which is the difference between the measured voltage and the expected voltage of the monitor circuit.
