Trapped Radiation Detector Jupiter Encounter Binary Reduction Data

NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00078

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

Time span: 1974-12-02 to 1974-12-03

Description

The UCSD Jovian trapped radiation data are on binary magnetic tape recorded on a CDC 3600 computer from raw data tapes using a reduction program. The tape was supplied by the experimenter. All data are written as positive binary integers to facilitate decoding by different machines. Each 342-word (48 bits/word) record contains encounter data, including time in milliseconds; count rates; flag data; colatitudes, longitudes and radius for the spacecraft, sun and Jupiter; magnetic field values; L values; and round-trip light time.

The data have been converted to ASCII format, see: https://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/nmc/dataset/display.action?id=PSFP-00822
