Tabulations of Hourly Averaged Pulse Rates on Microfilm


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

Time span: 1964-09-05 to 1967-12-06


This count rate data set is on one reel of 16-mm microfilm that was generated at NSSDC from computer printout submitted by the experimenter. The beginning and end times of the averaging period are given, and the pulsing rate of the ionization chamber, in normalized pulses per second, is given in four forms: unfiltered pulses, filtered pulses, clock pulses, and analog word pulses. Each of the rates represents data averaged over a period of 1 h unless shortened by a data gap. Also included are the original reel, file, and record numbers from which these data were obtained; an indication of whether the data were playback or real time; and the rate at which the data were telemetered. These data are time ordered and cover approximately 60% of the period from September 5, 1964, to December 6, 1967.

A related hard copy report giving hourly averages in text and in plots is "A Survey of the Total Radiation in Space Observed by the OGO Satellites 5 September, 1964 to 27 May, 1968", by S. R. Kane and J. R. Winckler, University of Minnesota Cosmic Ray Technical Report CR-135, September, 1969. This is entered into NSSDC's Technical Reference File as Bxxxx.
