ESA Swarm DISC prestudy:

“Development of recommendation for new Swarm products, services or tools”

In the context of the 2nd Swarm Call of Ideas, the idea of a Swarm Level 2 product identifying Pc1 (0.2-5 Hz) and Pc3 (20-100 mHz) micropulsations in Swarm satellite data along with a “cleaned” version of 50 Hz data with outliers and other artefacts removed (e.g. 1 Hz feature) was submitted.

Prior to the implementation of this idea, ESA Swarm DISC (Data, Innovation & Science Cluster) decided to support an open community effort (coordinated by NOA) to further demonstrate the scientific value of high-sampling-rate Swarm data (50 Hz VFM or even 250 Hz ASM).
