Overview of the comet escort phase. First panel: main SDL/LDL mode operated by RPC-MIP per day: the anti-phased SDL sub-mode is represented in yellow, the phased SDL sub-mode in green, and the others mode (E1,E2 and LDL mode) in grey. Second panel: daily average of the number of cold electron signatures (blue line) and the ratio between the cold electron detection and the total number of measured spectra (red line). Third panel: location of the diamagnetic cavity crossings observed by the RPC-MAG fluxgate magnetometer. Fourth panel: the cometocentric distance of Rosetta (black line) and the electron-neutral collision dominated region (exobase) (blue point) expressed in km in logarithmic scale. The surface of 67P is shown by the red line. Fifth panel: Rosetta latitude (green line) expressed in degrees and the heliocentric distance (yellow line).
