What are Cluster and PEACE?

Last Modified: 2010-02-25 16:23:42

A PEACE instrument is flying on each of the four Cluster spacecraft, which were launched in the summer of 2000. A Plasma Electron And Current Experiment instrument can measure the three dimensional velocity distribution of electrons in a space plasma, for an energy range from 1eV to 25 keV. The PI Institution for the PEACE instrument is the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London, in the U.K.

This web site provides plots of data from the ESA-NASA Cluster mission to support data browsing and event selection. The Cluster-PEACE Team have provided high time resolution PEACE data from all four Cluster spacecraft for that purpose. With approval from the PEACE PI, PEACE data may also be downloaded from here. Furthermore, the web site and underlying system design is compatible with the addition of data from other Cluster instruments.
