OSO-7 Solar X-ray Data (7.5 - 120KeV)


Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1971-09-30 to 1972-12-27


This experimenter-generated data set consists of IBM 360-compatible magnetic tape. The information on the tape is the X-ray counting rates detected by the instrument over the period from September 30, 1971, to December 31, 1972. The data are for the four energy intervals from 7.5 to 15 keV, 15 to 30 keV, 30 to 60 keV, and 60 to 120 keV. These data are the uncorrected observed counting rates. Data coverage is evenly divided among solar counting rates and counting rates obtained from the dayside of the earth, the nightside of the earth, and the celestial antisolar point (25% for each of the four). For information on the main data base, contact Dr. Edward Chupp, Physics Department, DeMeritt Hall, University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH 03824.
