Apollo 17 Surface Electrical Properties Experiment Calibrated ASCII Data Bundle (PDS)


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere


This bundle contains two comma-delimited ASCII files of calibrated lunar surface electromagnetic field and navigation (range) data from the Surface Electrical Properties (SEP) Experiment at the Apollo 17 landing site for the time span of 11-13 December 1972. One file contains straightened science and navigation (range) data; the other file contains only unstraightened science data. These data were extracted from binary files held on magnetic tape at the NASA Space Science Data Coordinated Archive as data set PSPG-00559, then reformatted to ASCII. This bundle also contains a high-resolution digital reproduction of the SEP final technical report that contains plots of the complete set of processed lunar field data, as decibal values versus range, and explanations the data processing and calibration techniques implemented by the SEP instrument team.
