Daily Averaged Count Rate Listings on Microfilm

NSSDCA ID: SPHE-00018

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

Time span: 1968-11-08 to 1971-09-04

Description

This data set consists of 16-mm microfilm generated at NSSDC from experimenter-supplied computer printout. Daily averaged count rates and standard errors (less than 1% of count rate), are listed for both Pioneers 8 and 9 for modes T1+2 and T5. Mode T1+2 corresponds to electrons above 8.4 MeV and nuclei above 64 MeV/n on Pioneer 8 and to electrons above 5.1 MeV and nuclei above 42 MeV/n on Pioneer 9. Mode T5 corresponds to electrons above 0.6 MeV and nuclei above 14 MeV/n on Pioneers 8 and 9. Data gaps near the end of the time period covered reflect decreasing spacecraft tracking.
