10-Min and 2-Hr Averaged Particle Count Rates


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

Time span: 1972-04-25 to 1972-05-29


This data set consists of averaged proton and electron fluxes on one binary magnetic tape, written on a CDC 6600 computer. The tape contains one file, and each physical record consists of 276 60-bit words. The first 16 words of a physical record give the orbit number, date, and fractional day of the start of the orbit, followed by the number of minutes of operation during the orbit (2 h) of the 0.53 to 0.68 keV electron mode, and 12 successive 10-min values of this parameter. The next 260 words constitute a 13- by 20-word array, where the first column of the array contains orbit-averaged fluxes for all 20 counting modes, and each of the next 12 columns contains 10-min averaged fluxes for these modes.
