Key Parameters G8_K0_EP8 from the GOES-8 Energetic Particle Sensor (EP8) in CDF


Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Electronic Access

Time span: 1995-12-01 to 


This data set contains the investigator-selected Key Parameters from the GOES-8 Energetic Particle Sensor (EP8), as made available via NSSDC's interactive WWW interface CDAWeb.

With this and subsequent launches, the instrument is referred to as EP8, instead of EPS.

CDAW is available at and supports: (1) graphical browse display of user-selected parameters and time intervals; (2) downloading of user-selected parameters in ASCII; and (3) downloading of data in CDF format.

Empty (no actual data) master CDFs for the CDAWeb CDFs are maintained in the CDAWeb system at NSSDC. These are the latest versions of the labeling, display, and explanatory information carried by the CDF structure for this data set. When a screen plot or an ASCII listing is obtained from CDAWeb, the master CDF information is automatically used and displayed. However, when the user obtains data by downloading CDFs from CDAWeb, the master CDF should also be obtained separately, as its content may well differ from that of the data CDFs, which remain unchanged.
