Distance of the electron exobase Len compared to the cometocentric distance of Rosetta rs/c. The colored data shows the cold electrons detected by the double resonance on the RPC-MIP spectra and the grey data shows all acquired spectra in phased SDL sub-mode. The red line shows where rs/c = Len and the blue vertical line shows the surface of 67P defined at around 2 km.
