Electron Temperature Values


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

Time span: 1967-05-05 to 1967-10-12


This data set of electron temperature values is a BCD magnetic tape written on an IBM 7094 computer. The electron temperature values are expressed in degrees K. There is normally a fixed time interval of 27.92 s between records. Information given at the beginning of each file consists of day number (January 1, 1967, is day number 1), approximate universal time in hours, telemetry station name, and an error code. Additional information in each record consists of local and universal time, and latitude and longitude in degrees. A graphical version of this data set appears in data set 67-042A-01B.
