Welcome to the 

Cluster EFW Data Page

EFW is the Electric Fields and Waves instrument on each of the four Cluster satellites. The main source for EFW data for scientific analysis is the Cluster Active Archive (CAA).

EFW CAA summary plots

Summary plots used for validation of EFW data for the Cluster Active Archive (CAA). Contains 3-hour plots of electric field specta, spacecraft potential and spin resolution electric field, as well as combined monthly multipage PDF files with specta.
