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


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere


This collection two comma-delimited ASCII files of calibrated lunar surface electromagnetic field data at six measured frequencies from 1.0 to 32.1 MHz 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. The bundle description in the document collection describes the format of these ASCII data products. Data available online at:
