Vector Magnetic Field Data Listings on Microfilm


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

Time span: 1967-07-19 to 1972-02-23


This data set consists of experimenter-supplied magnetic field data on 16-mm microfilm. The data is listed as two interspersed types. One type lists individual 5.12-s magnetic field magnitudes (x 10) and 81.92-s averages of these magnitudes. This type also lists 81.92-s averages of payload coordinate system Cartesian components (x 10), their standard rms deviations (x 100), latitude and longitude angles derived from the averaged components, and data quality flags. The other type of listing contains only 81.92-s values, including selenocentric spacecraft position (X, Y, Z in lunar radii (x 100) and derived longitude), geocentric GSM spacecraft Z coordinate in earth radii (x 10), field magnitude average (x 10) and its rms deviation (x 100), GSE and GSM Cartesian components of the field (x 10), rms deviations (x 100) for the ecliptic components, latitude and longitude angles derived from the ecliptic components, and data quality flags.
