Low-Band and High-Band Dynamic Spectra Plots, Saturn (Digitized)


Availability: Data Identified but not Received

Time span: 1980-01-01 to 1981-05-16


This collection consists of digitized microfilm where each frame displays four shaded low- or high-band spectral plots, giving frequency vs. spacecraft event time in hours of the day. The top spectrum is for polarization, where white is for right-handed dominance, and black is for left-handed dominance; the T-spectrum is for total power (sum of right and left); the R-spectrum is for right-hand polarization power; and the L-spectrum is for left-hand polarization power. The date and the spacecraft are displayed on the right-hand side of each frame.

For this digitization effort the NSSDCA scanned the source microfilm collections PSFP-00231 and PSFP-00245 (both are on the same, single reel) at a resolution of 400 dots per inch and output each frame on the film as one TIFF file. The NSSDCA also combined the TIFF images into a multipage PDF file to facilitate browsing. Both formats are included in this collection.
