The last inbound and the first outbound magnetopause crossings for each Rev, as observed by the Cassini CAPS/ELS (courtesy of Hazel McAndrews) and MAG instruments. The table has three columns with the date in (yyyy-doy::hh:mm:ss format), the solar wind dynamic pressure in nPa and the magnetopause stand-off distance in Rs. The pressure and stand-off distance have been estimated using the magnetopause model of Arridge et al. (2006) JGR in press. This table is subject to change due to refinements in the model or reanalysis of data - please contact the authors when using this table for work to be published to ensure you have the most up-to-date table.
