NEAR Magnetometer (MAG) Level 1B Data Archive (PDS)

NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00259

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

Time span: 1996-02-20 to 2001-02-28

Description

This data set contains raw telemetry data from the Magnetometer instrument on the NEAR spacecraft. The data are provided in engineering units that have been reformatted into FITS file format. In addition to the raw magnetometer data, a calibration file and algorithm are available. Files contain all data for one day.

The data are divided into volumes which contain cruise, Eros fly-by, Eros orbit, Eros surface, and Earth fly-by data. The volumes containing each file, the PDS ID, and the data range covered (in the form YYYYDDD) are given below:

NMCRU1_0001 NEAR-A-MAG-2-EDR-CRUISE1-V1.0 1996051 - 1997175

NMCRU2_0001 NEAR-A-MAG-2-EDR-CRUISE2-V1.0 1997179 - 1998022

NMCRU3_0001 NEAR-A-MAG-2-EDR-CRUISE3-V1.0 1998027 - 1998356

NMCRU4_0001 NEAR-A-MAG-2-EDR-CRUISE4-V1.0 1998358 - 2000010

NMERFB_0001 NEAR-A-MAG-2-EDR-EROS/FLY/BY-V1.0 1998357 - 1998357

NMEROS_0001 NEAR-A-MAG-2-EDR-EROS/ORBIT-V1.0 2000011 - 2001043

NMERSF_0001 NEAR-A-MAG-2-EDR-EROS/SURFACE-V1.0 2001044 - 2001059

NMERTH_0001 NEAR-A-MAG-2-EDR-EARTH-V1.0 1998023 - 1998026

All volumes are stored on one DVD (NMCOLL_1001) for archive. Total data quantity is 517.75 Mb.
