DC Electric Field Vectors and RMS ELF Noise Amplitude


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

Time span: 1973-12-18 to 1974-10-25


This data set, in 16-mm film, contains five panels in each frame, providing 1 or 2 h of data per frame. Panel 1 (top panel) shows data points as $ or * signs, about 40 s apart. Each symbol provides the GSE-Y component of the DC electric field (in mV/m), obtained by best-fitting two different sets of higher resolution data. The data is valid only if the two values are nearly the same at any time. They are frequently not so. The second panel provides the magnitude of the E-vector in mV/m, in the ecliptic plane. The third panel gives the GSE-longitude of the vector. Again the validity of the data in these panels in determined by the validity of the top panel. The plots in panel 4 could not be identified; the panel should be ignored. Panel 5 provides the logrithm of the rms value of the ELF electric field (in mV/m), from channel 11 (1.0-3.2 kHz).
