NEAR X-Ray/Gamma-Ray Spectrometer (XRS/GRS) Level 1B Data Archive (PDS)

NSSDCA ID: PSPG-00723

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

Time span: 1997-06-28 to 2001-02-28

Description

This data set contains the level 1b observations made by the NEAR X-Ray Spectrometer and Gamma-Ray Spectrometer (XRS/GRS). These data are in the form of spectra (256 16 bit words for the X-ray and 1024 16-bit words for the Gamma-Ray.)

The data are in FITS files with attached FITS headers and detached PDS labels. The data directory has subdirectories for each instrument sensor. Files contain all data for one day. This volume has been formatted according to the ISO-9660 level 2 Interchange Standard. This volume does not contain any Extended Attribute Records (XAR).

The total quantity of data is 3683 Mb. The data are divided into volumes which contain cruise, Eros fly-by, Eros orbit, Eros surface, and Earth fly-by data. The volumes containing each file, the PDS ID, and the date range covered (in the form YYYYDDD) are given below:
