EDI Data in SPEDAS

The MMS EDI measures the electric and magnetic fields by tracking electron beams emitted by the instrument. SPEDAS provides command line and GUI access to the MMS EDI data.

Release notes can be found here:

EDI Data

L2

EDI l2 electric field and ExB drift velocity

To load EDI l2 data for MMS1 on December 23, 2015:

MMS> mms_load_edi, probes='1', data_rate='srvy', datatype='efield', level='l2', trange=['2015-12-23','2015-12-24']

MMS> tplot, 'mms1_edi_'+ ['e_gsm_srvy_l2', 'vdrift_gsm_srvy_l2']

Quicklook
