Jovian Decametric Emission Catalog (15-40 MHz)


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

Time span: 1979-02-01 to 1979-04-05


The data set consists of a list of Jupiter's decametric radio emission (DAM) recorded by the Voyager Planetary Radio Astronomy (PRA) experiment during periods in 1979 adjacent to encounter. The events were read from the Voyager spectral records in the frequency range 15 to 40 MHz. Each event is listed by a day number and the date with the beginning and end times in spacecraft ephemeris time (SCET). The upper and lower frequency limits of the event are given in MHz. The corresponding System III (1965.0) central meridian longitudes and the Io-phase values are given for each event. For further details see Barrow, Astronomy and Astrophysics Supplement Series, v. 46, p. 111, 1981.
