Plots of Magnetic Field Components On Microfilm


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

Time span: 1962-08-29 to 1962-10-31


This data set consists of two reels of 35-mm microfilm that were generated at NSSDC from hardcopy plots submitted by the experimenter. Each frame contains 2 h of data with data points presented every 36.96 s. The plots on each frame, from top to bottom, give approximate projections of the measured magnetic field on the solar equatorial plane and on a perpendicular plane containing the sun direction. A third graph gives the measured magnetic field magnitude and Mariner 2 plasma velocity data supplied by Dr. M. Neugebauer. These data, which are time ordered, cover approximately 70% of the period from August 29, 1962, to October 31, 1962.

Digital images (scans) of the entire contents of the microfilm are available as data collection PSFP-00725, see
