Comments on Solar Wind (SW) Data Availability
For Event 2, Event 3, Event 4 verified solar wind (SW) data (Level 2) are available at the ACE science center
Click HERE to generate SW input data file with magnetic (ACE MAG) and plasma data (ACE SWEPAM) interpolated on 1 minute temporal grid using CCMC on-line tool. The CCMC SW input file generation tool allows to project data from the ACE position to the simulation box inflow boundary and/or to add a time shift. SW parameters in the generated input data file are provided in the following order:
Year Month Day Hour Min Sec Msec BXGSM[nT] BYGSM[nT] BZGSM[nT] VXGSM[km/s] VYGSM[km/s] VZGSM[km/s] N[cm^(-3)] T[Kelvin]
For Event 1 there were problems with ACE plasma instrument (SWEPAM).

Year Month Day Hour Min Sec Msec BXGSE[nT] BYGSE[nT] BZGSE[nT] VXGSE[km/s] VYGSE[km/s] VZGSE[km/s] N[cm^(-3)] T[Kelvin] .
Magnetic field components ( BXGSE, BYGSE, BZGSE) are from ACE MAG, velocity components (VXGSE, VZGSE, VZGSE) and temperature (T) are from ACE SWEPAM, and density (N) is from the Geotail plasma wave experiment. The data are projected to Xgse = 32 Re.
