Description

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

Data Set Overview ==================== This data set describes the counting rate data from detectors D1 and D2 in the Cosmic Ray System (CRS) electron telescope (TET) on Voyager 2 during the Saturn encounter. The D1 detector nominally responds to electrons with kinetic energies above approximately 1 MeV, and the D2 detector, above approximately 2.5 MeV (see detector description for details). Note that the instrument is saturated near the maximum of counting rate of approximately 50,000 counts/sec. The following time intervals in this data set contain saturated data: D1: 1981-08-26 01:37 --> 1981-08-26 02:13 1981-08-26 05:15 --> 1981-08-26 05:51 D2: 1981-08-26 02:32 --> 1981-08-26 03:08 1981-08-26 04:24 --> 1981-08-26 04:47 When data are near saturation, the counting rates should be corrected for deadtime according to the formula in the DATA_SET_OR_INST_PARM_DESC: {corrected rate} = {uncorrected rate/(1+deadtime*{uncorrected rate}). Parameters =============== SAMPLING_PARAMETER_RESOLUTION = 192.0 MINIMUM_SAMPLING_PARAMETER = N/A MAXIMUM_SAMPLING_PARAMETER = N/A SAMPLING_PARAMETER_INTERVAL = 192.0 MINIMUM_AVAILABLE_SAMPLING_INT = 192.0 SAMPLING_PARAMETER_UNIT = SECOND DATA_SET_PARAMETER_NAME = D1/D2 RATE NOISE_LEVEL = 0.000 DATA_SET_PARAMETER_UNIT = COUNTS/SECOND
