1 Minute Averaged Field with Speed Data


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere

Time span: 1978-08-13 to 1979-06-28


This magnetic field data set is on binary magnetic tape created on an IBM 360 computer. The tapes were created at NSSDC by combining parts of the reduced magnetometer data from data set 78-079A-02D and the plasma data from data set 78-079A-01D. The tapes contain physical records consisting of 300 88-byte logical records. Each logical record contains the following data: year, day of year (Jan.1=1), seconds of day at the start of the minute; solar wind flow speed (with 5-min resolution); spacecraft position (in GSE coordinates); 1-min-averaged magnetic field magnitude and components (in GSE coordinates), and the squares of the magnitude and of the components; 1-min averages of the products of each combination of two magnetic field components; and 1-min average of the ratio of each component to the total magnetic field.
