Description

This description was generated automatically using input from the Planetary Data System. This data set includes full resolution electric and magnetic wave spectra from the Galileo plasma wave receiver recorded during Jupiter orbital operations. In addition waveform survey data (uncalibrated) and all instrument housekeeping data are included. The parameters provided for the electric field spectral data are uncalibrated data numbers. Software and calibration tables provided as part of this data set allow for fully calibrated data for the electric field measurements in raw data numbers, voltage at the antenna inputs (V), electric field (V/m), electric field spectral density (V**2/m**2/Hz), or power flux (W/m**2/Hz). The sources of these data are the High Frequency Receiver, Sweep Frequency Receiver, and Spectrum Analyzer which make up the Low Rate Science portion of the PWS. During the included time interval, all receivers were connected to the electric antenna. Hence, the temporal resolution for electric measurements is 18.67 seconds. Note that the lowest 14 High Frequency Receiver channels are sampled twice per 18.67 seconds while the remaining channels are sampled only once. The four Spectrum Analyzer channels are each sampled 7 times in an 18.67 sec interval. The waveform survey data are generated by the wideband receiver portion of the Plasma Wave Instrument. These data are 4-bit measurements of the voltage across the preamplifier input at a rate of 201.6 k, 25.2 k or 3.2 k samples per second (for the 80 kHz, 10 kHz, and 1 kHz bandwidth modes, respectively) using either the electric dipole or magnetic search coil antennas. An automatic gain control receiver is used to set the gain at an optimum value so as to make the best use of the limited dynamic range afforded by the 4-bit analog-to-digital converter. In principle, it is possible to use the Automatic Gain Control (AGC) readout contained in the data set to calibrate this voltage, but this capability does not currently exist for this data set. This data set is highly discontinuous in time. Because of the severe limitations in the downlink capability of the Galileo spacecraft, LPW rate data were recorded only for targeted observations. Most of these data were acquired near the Galilean moons, although selected observations were made in various locations around the magnetosphere. Table 1 below provides a listing of the start and stop times of the recorded data segments, organized according to. where the data were acquired. ----------------------------------------------------------------Table 1.
