First report
Updated : 2007.12.17
Observation date : 2007.10.28

The initial functional check out of the Lunar MAGnetometer (LMAG) was performed on October 29, 2007. By using processed data, the LMAG was confirmed to have enough capability to measure the weak lunar magnetic field accurately. The LMAG's measurement error was below 0.1 nT, and that is approximately 2/100,000 of the geomagnetic intensity in Japan. Further functional check out of LMAG will be done and LMAG is expected to observe the distribution of the weak lunar magnetic field.

This data was processed by the LMAG team.
