Here you can download the IDL code that processes EFI data from Swarm, i.e., finds plasma density increases (polar cap patches) in plasma density data, calculates the gradient drift instability growth rates, and saves the results in CDF files.

The IDL code documentation can also be found here.

If you find any bugs or have any other feedback, we would love to hear from you.
