Count Component Title Abstract
1 Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) The Deep Space Climate ObserVatoRy (DSCOVR) satellite is a NOAA operated asset at the first Lagrange (L1) point. The primary space weather instrument is the PlasMag suite. PlasMag includes a fluxgate magnetometer (MAG) that measures the local magnetic field, and a Faraday Cup (FC) that measures the solar wind bulk properties (wind speed, density and temperature). The PlasMag solar wind data are essential inputs for the forecasts and nowcasts provided to SWPC customers. The PlasMag data are also available to scientists for sensor cal/val and for research purposes. DSCOVR was launched on Feb. 11, 2015, so all data present in the Archive from earlier dates are data used for ground testing, and do not represent the space environment. DSCOVR became operational on July 27, 2016. End Of Life (EOL) is anticipated to be December 2019. NCEI plans to receive data until EOL, and will continue to archive the data in accordance with Data Center policies.

Count Component DateTime Description
1 SWPC acquires DSCOVR data from the Real-Time Solar Wind Network (RTSWNet) and processes the real-time measurements into processed data and user products. NCEI receives the DSCOVR data from SWPC as day-files of unprocessed and processed products.
1 2015-04-22T00:00:00 NOAA created the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) by merging NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), and National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC), including the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC), per the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, Public Law 113-235. NCEI launched publicly on April 22, 2015.
