The data produced by Wind are of the highest quality andthe Wind investigators make an enormously diverse set of key parameter (KP)data products available to the world scientific community. As Table 1.0 shows, Wind experimenters makeavailable 220 KP products from 6 different particles and field experiments. Of the data downloaded through CDAWeb, the KPs produced by Wind continue to be used by this community more than those of any other mission.
