BIMS Data, 850-140km Data

NSSDCA ID: PSPA-00129

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

Time span: 1978-12-09 to 1978-12-09

Description

These experimenter-supplied, ion mass spectrometer data are on ASCII magnetic tape created on an IBM 3081 computer. Each 36-byte record contains UT time in tenths of seconds, altitude in tenths of kilometers, ion density in ions/cubic cm, and atomic mass units. The tape contains data for masses 1, 2, 4, 12, 14, 16, 28, 30, 32, and 44 for the time interval from 73053 (tenths of a second) to 73300 on day 343 of 1978. This corresponds to the altitude range 850 km down to about 140 km. This was the only range of data retrievable from the Experiment Data Record (EDR) tapes.
