Time-of-year/time–of-day (FUT) plots for transpolar voltage and polar cap flux for 2001–2002, inclusive from the DMSP satellites. Data are sorted into 24 equal-width bins in F and 16 equal width bins of UT using the central time of the polar cap traversal. The top panels (a–d) are for passes of the northern polar cap, the lower panels (e–h) are for passes of the southern polar cap. (a and e) Show the transpolar voltage ΦPC; (b and f) show the polar cap flux, WPC; (c and g) show the simultaneous am index value (linearly interpolated from the three-hourly values to the time of the centre of the polar cap crossing) and (e and h) shows the number of data points, nbin in each FUT bin.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
