Plots and Listings of Solar X-ray Burst Data on Microfilm


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

Time span: 1965-02-04 to 1965-03-08


The data set is contained on two reels of 35-mm microfilm. The data are in reduced form, having been converted from GM tube counting rates to units of X-ray flux by use of appropriate conversion factors. The conversion factors for each detector are included in the data set. Only the data from the pointed mode of the experiment are given, since the raster mode failed to function. The first reel of microfilm covers the period February 4, 1965 (1327 UT), to February 19, 1965 (0247 UT), and the second reel covers February 19, 1965 (0326 UT), to March 8, 1965 (1858 UT). Plots of hourly and minute flux averages, tabular listings of minute flux averages and their standard deviations, detector energy calibration curves, and detector spectral sensitivity curves are included on the microfilm. For information on the main data base, contact Dr. Robert Kreplin or Dr. Talbot Chubb, Naval Research Laboratory, 4555 Overlook Avenue S.W., Washington, DC 20375.
