Calibration Data

NSSDCA ID: SPIO-00246

Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere

Time span: 1967-07-28 to 1968-12-30

Description

This data set, supplied by the principal investigator, contains experiment calibration data on a binary magnetic tape written on an IBM 360 computer. Each calibration cycle results in a 20-word set of data. An output record is generated whenever 50 such sets are accumulated. Included in the 20-word calibration cycle are the year, day of year, and millisecond of day of calibration run, the dark current and experiment temperature, the quantity "electrometer output minus dark current for the mirror positions 1 to 7," and the electrometer zero level for low, medium, and high gain. The accompanying documentation gives calibration procedures. This data set was used to generate data set 67-073A-12F.
