Examples of a the scatter mode and b the 2D slice plot for ion velocity distributions (phase space density vs. velocity) in magnetic field coordinates observed by MMS1/FPI. Cyan and yellow arrows represent the directions of the magnetic field and the velocity vector, respectively. The spacecraft was crossing the dayside magnetopause at this time period, as shown in Fig. 7
