The magnetic conjugation numerical file description

Magnetosphere models | Region designations | Corrected geomagnetic coordinates |

Let us consider as an example two numerical files with names tp.cng This files contain the information about INTERBALL Tail Probe and POLAR magnetic conjugations.

The Tsyganenko 87 (KP = 2) + IGRF magnetic field model are used during magnetic mapping.
Stop trace altitude (km) 110.
The predicted magnetic conjugations correspond to the less then 5 deg geocentric angular distance between the footprints.
For the selected time intervals the geographical coordinates of the Tail Probe and POLAR magnetic mapping are shown with 10 min. step. For each time two lines (the first for Auroral Probe, the second one for the POLAR) contain the coordinates as follows:
