Shock database selection

Build your shock database.
To receive all available data, click 'Submit' without selecting anything.
To limit and specialise your database, select any spacecraft or mission, and/or adjust any parameter range, before clicking 'Submit'.

Observing spacecraft(s):

(Cluster observations cover the period 27 Jan 2003 - 16 Dec 2012)

(If all spacecraft and mission boxes are left empty, then everything will be included.)

Shock type: (If left empty, all will be included.)

Data mode: (If left empty, all will be included.)

Adjust one or more parameter ranges:
(The pre-filled default values correspond to the lowest and highest values in the current database.)
