UCSD Solar X-ray Catalog on Microfilm


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

Time span: 1971-10-02 to 1973-02-27


This data set is a microfiche copy of a catalog that lists the times of complete data coverage of, and the principal X-ray events observed with, the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) OSO 7 solar X-ray experiment (71-083A-05). The catalog is intended as a data reference for scientific investigators wishing to do correlative studies involving solar X-ray data. The UCSD instrument observed a large number of X-ray events during the period covered by this catalog, October 2, 1971, to February 27, 1973. The basic data contained in the catalog are (1) the times of observations, (2) the times of occurrence of charged-particle events, (3) the times of the peaks in solar X-ray bursts, and (4) the peak fluxes in photons/(sq cm-s-keV) for the 5.1 to 6.6 keV channel of the proportional counter and for the 20 to 30 keV channel of the scintillation counter. The catalog was generated using the set of magnetic tapes containing the reduced data that were produced by the UCSD experimenters for NSSDC. Each requester should receive a hard copy of "Data Users Note for the OSO-7 UCSD Solar X-ray Instrument's Data Coverage and Deleted X-ray Events Catalog (B22876-000A)" and a listing of the TRF bibliography for the experiment 71-083A-05 and its associated data sets.
