One Hour Cruise Averages


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere

Time span: 1973-04-06 to 1995-01-24


These experimenter-supplied, Jovian charged particle 1-h averaged cruise data are on ASCII magnetic tape created on a UNIVAC 418 computer. Each 1226-byte record contains spacecraft ID; time in year, day, begin and end day fractions; quarter hour number; period (60 min); type of data; number of samples; effective counts; sum of raw counts/0.09375; count rate average (counts/s); standard deviation of count rate; M (Fourier coefficients); K (phase amplitude); phase angle; sum of raw counts; and number of errors. Various combinations of detectors yield information on 5- to 21-MeV electrons, and- 30 to 77.5-Mev protons; 0.55- to 21-MeV electrons, and 6.6- to 77.5- MeV protons; electrons above 31 MeV, and protons above 77.5 MeV; and electrons above 0.06 MeV. Dates and times were specified with respect to Earth Received Time - UT.
