Multi-Spacecraft Analysis Techniques
The technical note below describes the curlometer technique - a method to estimate the current density within the space formed by the tetrahedron of Cluster. It includes step-by-step explanations and calculations and code in Python for estimating the current density from five vectors-per-second (5VPS) FGM magnetic field data.
This is the first technical note of a series, applying multi-spacecraft analysis techniques - helping you get the most out of Cluster data.
