184         <Description>
185             The PEACE (Plasma Electron and Current Experiment) electron analyser measures the electron velocity distribution
186             function at the satellite in three dimensions with good time, energy, and angular resolution. 
187            The CSDS PEACE parameters are all derived from a subset of the moment sums calculated onboard and the procedure
188            is described in more detail in the CSDS User's Guide (ftp://ftp.estec.esa.nl/pub/csds/task_for/users_guide/csds_guide-1_1.pdf).
189            For the CSDS Summary Parameter product, PEACE provides a status word, the electron density, the three averaged components of the
190            electron velocity vector in the GSE coordinate system, the electron temperature parallel and perpendiculer to the magnetic field
191            and the elctron heat flux parallel to the magnetic field. 
192            These summary parameters are one minute averaged measurements from the PEACE experiment on the Cluster C3 spacecraft.
193            The magnetic field direction is determined from FGM data.
194            The  positions in the GSE coordinate system are found in the Auxiliary Summary product (CL_SP_AUX).
