NOAA GOES-R Series Magnetometer (MAG) Instrument Calibration Data

Metadata Updated: January 1, 2024

The Magnetometer Instrument Engineering Telemetry Data file contains data used to support the generation of the Magnetometer Level 1b product, and monitor and evaluate the health and performance of the two magnetometers. This data is transmitted to the ground in raw digital counts, and subsequently converted into physical units by the ground system. Some of the data pertains to the temperature of components of the magnetometers. This includes temperatures for the electronics and sensors. Other telemetry includes reference voltages and temperature dependent scale factors and offsets relating raw observed counts to magnetic field units (nanoteslas) for the two magnetometers. The Magnetometer Calibration Data file contains raw observation counts and data acquisition status from the inboard and outbound magnetometers for a one second interval during a calibration maneuver. Nominally, this file contains ten observation samples acquired at one-tenth of a second intervals.
