Take the action to compare with THEMIS.  Followup with Ergun and Strangeway.

AGREEMENT:  must label all plots ... this is for exchange of data between teams and instruments.  Publication can have whatever. 

  • Densities: [cm^-3]
  • Speed, Velocities : [km/s]
  • Angles, Phase shifts : [deg]
  • Pressures (plasma - dynamic and , thermal, magnetic): [nPa] --> RJS comment - do we need separate entries for plasma and magnetic pressures?
  • Temperatures: [eV]
  • HeatFlux: [mW/m^2]
  • Entropy: [erg/K]  -->there is a suggestion to change this but no opinion as to what -> RJS comment - is this specific entropy log(P-rho^-gamma)? If so units are equivalent to Boltzmann constant, use J/K?
  • Electric Field: [mV/m]
  • Probe to Spacecraft Potential: [V]
  • Electric Field Power Spectral Density : [(V/m)^2/Hz -->>  Ergun argument - note that in these units E/B = 3*c, quickly tell ES v EM
  • ExB velocity: [km/s]
  • Poynting Flux : [mW/m^2]
  • Magnetic Field: [nT]
  • Magnetic field power spectral density: [nT^2/Hz]
  • Pressure (magnetic): [nPa]
  • Current density: [nA/m^2]
  • Differential Number Flux: #/(cm^2 s ster eV)
  • Differential Energy Flux: eV/(cm^2 s ster eV)
