Mariner 2 1-hr Averaged Plasma Parameters, ASCII


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

Time span: 1962-08-29 to 1962-12-30


This data set, originally written in binary (PSFP-00145), was converted to ASCII by NSSDCA. The contents of file was unchanged with respect to original file except that the block control bytes and zero padding dummy bytes were removed and the order of contents was slightly changed. These analyzed data consist of 1-hr averages of plasma bulk speed computed by the experimenter from unaveraged parameters (data set 62-041A-06B). Where upper and lower limits of the velocity were given, the upper limit was used in the calculation. The data consist of day of year, time, bulk speed, and the number of values used to generate the average. Data coverage is 90% over the time period indicated.
