Short product names
This product contains characterization of the electrojet sheet current density as well as the total horizontal sheet and associated large-scale field-aligned current density along the Swarm orbit ionospheric footprints at auroral latitudes (by using LC method).

|Latitude profiles of high-latitude ionospheric horizontal sheet current densities using the Line Current method
|MAGx_LR_1B, Latest CHAOS model1 including, core, lithosphere, magnetosphere and secondary currents.
|Input Time Span
|One geographic and quasi-dipole latitude/longitude pair for each output value. Longi-tudes and latitudes of nearest magnetic-field measurement. Given at Swarm footprints (at 110 km altitude) according to the time representation of this product2. The footprints have been determined with radial mapping.
|1 deg latitude corresponding to ~ 15 s
|Full resolution (Double precision)

|RMS characterizing the misfit between modelled and measured magnetic field by Swarm
|Output time span

| 1 Version information of Input Data are available in the CDF global attributes.
2 Product always contain data from the start of the first oval crossing of the day until the end of the last oval crossing starting that day, i.e. may contain data from the next day if oval crossing occurs around midnight.
3 In Line Current method the equatorward boundary of oval crossing is always at +/- 50 QD latitude and the poleward boundary is at the most poleward point in QD latitude of the satellite trajectory.
