Solar Wind Basic Parameter Listing on Microfiche

NSSDCA ID: SPHE-00432

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

Time span: 1978-08-16 to 1980-02-19

Description

This data set contains a simple continuous listing of several solar wind parameters on microfiche. The listing consists of lines of parameters calculated from search mode spectra, which were measured at intervals of about 5.2 min. Each line contains: the date (year, month, and day), universal time (hour, minute, and second), seconds of the day, hydrogen density (1/cm**3), hydrogen bulk velocity (km/s), hydrogen bulk flow direction (deg), and hydrogen parallel and perpendicular temperatures (K). (The average hydrogen temperature may be found by using one-third of the sum of the parallel temperature and twice the perpendicular temperature.) The bulk flow direction has the range of -25 to +25 deg and has been corrected for the aberration caused by the earth's motion around the sun.
