Wind and Polar Satellites

The data from our research project was gathered with the help of two satellites. One the these satellites, know as Polar, obtained electron energy counts within earths magnetic field with a instrument called Hydra. The wind Satellite measured solar wind speed, density, and magnetic field components with two instruments- SWE, and MFI. With these two satellites gathering valuable data, we were able to create a spreadsheet and discover interesting corelations between the plasma originating from the sun detected by WIND and the strahl electrons traveling on magnetic fields detected by POLAR.
