NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00005

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

Time span: 1967-07-25 to 1970-05-26

Description

This data set consists of solar soft X-ray flux data, in the 2- to 12-A range, on a BCD magnetic tape. The analyzed data were submitted by the experimenter. The data set is complete, and the coverage is 75% if every break in the data stream larger than 5 min is counted. The flux is an average over 80 s and is in units of milliergs/cm**2-s.
