Description

This description was generated automatically using input from the Planetary Data System.

This file is a listing of particle energy spectra from the Galileo Plasma Instrument (PLS) during the second Earth Encounter. Detector reponses from ion detetors 2P, 4P, and 6P, and from electron detector 4E are available through the PDS as separate files. The energy resolution, angular fields of view, and nominal geometric factors for the detectors are specified in the Instrument Description file. Data Set Overview ================= For each detector the responses (Counts/Sample-Period) are given for a series of energy-per-unit charge steps (E/Q, Volts). These responses are summed over spin sectors. The instrument is programmable, and operating modes are tailored for different mission phases to acquire effective measurements. The E/Q steps and Sample Periods for different mission phases (through Ida) are tabled below.
