Hourly Averaged Solar Wind Proton Plasma Data and Moments

NSSDCA ID: SPHE-00007

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

Time span: 1973-04-21 to 1986-05-04

Description

This data set is written as file 2 on a binary magnetic tape created on an IBM 3081 computer. It consists of time-ordered hourly averages of the five solar wind plasma parameters and related functions. The parameters are density (protons/cc), temperature (deg K), bulk speed (km/s), and the two flow angles (deg). The functions are the momentum flux, convective pressure, thermal pressure, and energy density. Also included is the rms dispersion in each parameter average. The averages are generated from the full data set, 73-019A-13B.
