Jupiter Plasma Data


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

Time span: 1979-03-01 to 1979-07-12


These experimenter-supplied, Jupiter plasma analysis data are on binary magnetic tape created on an IBM 360 computer. There are seven different types of records. All have identical formats and contain time in year, day, hour, minute, second, and milliseconds; data mode (L-mode, M-mode, or electron mode); type of analysis; tape generation date; and a 30-word matrix containing the results of the analysis. These results depend on the mode and type of analysis for the record. The seven different record types are (1) L-mode positive-ion charge densities (moment analyses), (2) M-mode positive-ion charge densities, (3) selected middle magnetosphere L-mode fits, (4) selected middle magnetosphere M-mode fits, (5) continuous middle magnetosphere M-mode fits, (6) Io torus M-mode fits, and (7) electron moment and fit parameters.
