The Swarm satellite mission is well into its four-year mission to provide precise, multi-point in situ observations of magnetic and electric fields, along with plasma properties of the ionosphere. When combined with ground-based cameras, Swarm provides an excellent opportunity to study the electrodynamic properties of auroral forms such as arcs and pulsating patches. This talk will provide an overview of recent observations of electric and magnetic fields associated with field-line resonance arcs, pulsating patches, and multiple arc systems. Availability and quality of data for those interested in carrying out related studies will also be discussed.
