0.32 s GSE Magnetic Field Data


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere

Time span: 1979-03-22 to 1979-03-22


This data tape contains high time resolution magnetic field data. It is a binary tape, written by an IBM 3081. There are eight logical records per physical record, containing the Cartesian components Bx, By, and Bz, every 0.32 s apart. Also listed are the 1.28-s averages of these components as well as the X, Y, and Z values (in earth radii) of the location of the spacecraft. Whether the coordinate system used is GSE or GSM is specified by the symbols SE or SM. When data were obtained in high bit rate mode (indicated by HI), only samples 1, 9, 17, and 25 provide the data. The rest of the samples in a 32-sample group should then be ignored.
