Warning: The listed densities were calculated prior to cross-calibration with the RPWS measurements of electron density, and are known to be high by a factor of a few.
Frank Crary's Email on Bow Shocks

I haven't had a chance to look at Bill's spreadsheet, or compare it to the CAPS data, but I have just put together some fits to shock-related CAPS data. For quite a few of the shocks, we either had a poor pointing, or I was unable to get good fits to the CAPS spectra (software rather than data problems). There are also some events where I'm not sure if we were seeing a bow or interplanetary shock. But for the following 5 events, I'm fairly sure we were seeing a bow shock crossings, and I've calculated upstream solar wind conditions. With luck, this will help explain why some of the crossings were so far from the pre-encounter predictions.
