NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2004-025C

Description

Demeter (Detection of ElectroMagnetic Emissions Transmitted from Earthquake Regions) is a French minisatellite (125 kg) that monitors the Electromagnetic activity in the ionosphere during and after earthquakes. It was launched by a Dnieper booster at 07:45 UT on 29 June 2004. It carries probes for electric fields (0-3 MHz) (ICE) and magnetic fields (10 Hz-18 kHz) (IMSC), a plasma analyzer (IAP), a Langmuir probe (ISL), and a particle detector (IDP).
