Proton-Alpha Telescope Pulse Height Analyzer Data

NSSDCA ID: SPHE-00547

Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere

Time span: 1966-09-04 to 1967-11-25

Description

This data set consists of reduced pulse height analyzer data, ordered by solar rotation number, on three 7-track, 800-bpi, XDS 930, binary magnetic tapes. Each tape has a 56-character header record followed by a variable number of files. Each file has a 25-character header record followed by a variable number of 4098-character records. Each record contains a list of the pulse height values of analyzed events plus the number of good, bad, fill, reset, and untransmitted events during a specified time period. The pulse height analysis was carried out for two of the dE/dx vs range telescope coincidence combinations (D1' not D2' not D4', and D1'D2' not D4'), corresponding to proton energies from 1.4 to 8.6 MeV and from 8.6 to 33 MeV. A microfilmed index of this data set is also available (data set 64-054A-18E).
