            presentationForm:
        abstract:  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.
        purpose:  To provide scientific data stewardship of solar-terrestrial datasets in compliance with NOAA Administrative Order (NAO) 212-15, "Management of Environmental and Geospatial Data and Information", dated 04 Nov 10. Scientific Data Stewardship includes the Archive, Access, and Assessment (AAA) of operational and related solar and space environmental datasets.
