Galileo PLS LASP survey

We have re-analysed the Galileo PLS data using a forward model in order to extract plasma parameters such as density, velocity and temperature. This work is published with the following citation, however here we include all the figures and data that could not fit in the paper, e.g. orbit plots for each orbit.

Bagenal, F., R. J. Wilson, S. Siler, W. R. Paterson, and W. S. Kurth (2016), Survey of Galileo Plasma Observations in Jupiter’s Plasma Sheet. J. Geophys. Res. Planets, 120, doi: 10.1002/2016JE005009.

The following multi-page PDFs are available, where 100pc means only plasma parameters with uncertainties on density, temperature and azimuthal velocity under 100% were included:

We also compared our data with the Paterson Numerical Moments, and ploted all the plasma parameters binned in radial distance, divided into quadrants in both local time and SYSIII longitude:
