NASA Laser Reflector Data

NSSDCA ID: ESGP-00109

Availability: Data Accessible Elsewhere

Time span: 1967-05-10 to 1971-07-23

Description

This data set consists of 2381 reduced geodetic laser observations obtained by the NASA Laser System. The data, which were received on magnetic tape from the observing network, were quality checked for reasonableness, sorted, and merged (20 logical records per physical record) onto a master tape. Parameters for each observation include station number, UT, laser range in meters, preprocessing report number, and a description of random errors. A complete description of the data format can be found in 'Support Activity of the Geodetic Satellite Data Service,' GSFC-NSSDC, November 1965.
