Total Magnetic Field Magnitude and Components on Microfilm

NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00222

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

Time span: 1971-07-31 to 1972-09-20

Description

This data set consists of 16-mm microfilm, generated at NSSDC from hardcopy original plots submitted by the experimenter. Each frame contains 30 to 60 min of data. Three- or 6-sec averaged values of magnetic field magnitude and of each of 3 components are plotted per frame. The coordinate system used has the X-axis normal to the local surface, and the Y- and Z-axis normal to X and directed eastward and northward, respectively. Ther are very few data gaps.

Digital images (scans) of the entire contents of the microfilm are available as data collection PSFP-00723.
