Magnetic Field Data Pool Plots on Microfilm


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

Time span: 1978-08-12 to 1987-02-07


These data are contained on 35-mm microfilm reels. The data are plotted vs time in sets of 10 types of plots for each day. Each type of plot shows the magnetic field magnitude, flags indicating when the spacecraft maneuvering unit was on, and the spacecraft position in GSE coordinates (in Re) at a specified time during the day, plus outputs of the investigator's quick-look algorithms for one of the following experiments: solar wind plasma (78-079A-01A), magnetic fields (-02A), low-energy cosmic rays (-03A), medium-energy cosmic rays (-04A), cosmic ray electrons and nuclei (-06A), plasma waves (-07C), energetic protons (-08D), interplanetary and solar electrons (-09C), radio mapping (-10A), and X-ray and gamma-ray bursts (-14D). The triaxial vector magnetometer data include the magnetic field value in Cartesian spacecraft coordinates (along the direction of the spacecraft spin axis, along the spin-plane projection of the spacecraft-sun line, and along a third orthogonal coordinate) on one type of plot and in spacecraft spherical coordinates on a second type of plot. All six quantities plotted are 5 ISEE-min averages.
