Example Case Studies in the Use of SPDF Data Services -
- A cluster of 11 AGU publications surveyed, mostly in
2003-2004, yielded an impressive array of new results
about the outer magnetosphere of Earth, all of which
depended critically on input solar wind observations
obtained through CDAWeb.
- Two magnetospheric oscillation papers (Huang et al,
2003a and 2003b) both make extensive use of CDAWeb
data correlated to other sources for investigation of
global magnetospheric response to solar wind pressure
- SPDF's services are acknowledged as playing an
important role in developing geospace models as well
as in helping the science community with the use of
