5 Minute Resolution Plasma Parameter Data

NSSDCA ID: SPHE-00219

Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere

Time span: 1973-10-31 to 1980-08-08

Description

These 5-min averaged plasma data are on EBCDIC magnetic tape created on an IBM 360 computer. Each physical record contains 37 logical records of 430 bytes. The data consist of spacecraft ID, year, day of year, minute of day, average value, standard deviation, and number of samples that provided the average, for each of the following: bulk speed (km/s), density, thermal speed, flux, ratio of thermal speed to bulk speed, E-W angle, N-S angle, tangential (T) and normal (N) velocity components, and flux from four orientations.

Data are available online at ftp://cdaweb.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/data/
