One-HR Averaged Plasma Bulk Velocity Data

NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00145

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

Time span: 1962-08-29 to 1962-12-30

Description

These analyzed data consist of 1-h averages of plasma bulk speed computed by the experimenter from unaveraged parameters (data set 62-041A-06B). Where upper and lower limits of the velocity were given, the upper limit was used in the calculation. The data are contained in one file on one 7-track, 556-bpi, BCD magnetic tape. Each physical record of 84 characters (a control word and an 80-character card image) contains the time, bulk speed, the number of values used to generate the average, and day of year. Data coverage is 90% over the time period indicated.
