[1] ICME = Interplanetary Coronal Mass Ejection
[2] Rau = Spacecraft radial distance from the Sun in AU
[3] MO = Magnetic Obstacle
[4] MO Type = Flux-rope (Fr), Small rotation flux-rope (F-), Large rotation flux-rope (F+), Complex (Cx), or Ejecta(E)
[5] B = Mean magnetic field magnitude value in the MO interval
[6] DiP = The distortion parameter. Used to quantify the effect of cross-section distortion in the MO that is due to the interaction with the solar wind. DiP is defined as the fraction time t where 50% of the total magnetic field is accumulated. Please refer to Nieves-Chinchilla et al 2018
[7] Vsw = Mean Solar Wind Bulk velocity in the MO interval.
[8] Vexp = Expansion velocity in the MO interval.
