Three-HR Averaged Plasma Parameter Data

NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00002

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

Time span: 1962-08-29 to 1962-12-29

Description

These analyzed data consist of 3-h averages of upper and lower limits of velocity, upper and lower limits of temperature, density, ratio of alpha particle density to proton density, and a high-energy tail parameter. Also included is the number of spectra used in computing each of the averages and time. These data were computed by the experimenter from unaveraged parameters. The data are contained on one file of a 7-track, 556-bpi, BCD magnetic tape with 84 characters (control word and 80 character card image) per physical record. There is a 90 % data coverage over the time period indicated. A microfilmed listing of this tape is also available (62-041A-06E, PSFP-00141).
