Seismic Event Compressed Meteoroid Impact Records

NSSDCA ID: PSPG-00081

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

Time span: 1972-05-11 to 1975-05-04

Description

This data set consists of a magnetic tape of selected large meteoroid impact records (type C events) recorded by the passive seismic event (PSE) network with compressed scale amplitudes of 10 mm or larger detected by at least two stations. Each frame of data on the tape consists of eighteen 36-bit words. The first three words contain timing, synchronization, and error information. The remaining words contain the recorded seismic data. Each seismic data segment contains 10 bits, or a range from 0 to 1023 digital units (DU). Sensor equilibrium data values are near 500 digital units. The tape was written in binary on a PDP-15 computer.
