Calibrated Digital GM Tube and Ion Chamber Count Rate Data on Microfilm

NSSDCA ID: SPMS-00013

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

Time span: 1959-08-07 to 1959-10-02

Description

This data set contains Geiger-Mueller (GM) tube and ion chamber electron and proton count rates on two reels of 35-mm microfilm that were generated from experimenter-submitted computer listings. Each frame lists the date and time (UT) of the observations and the station at which the data were received. The contents of the GM tube and ion chamber registers are presented. Ephemeris information is given as geocentric range, right ascension, declination, and east longitude of the spacecraft. These data are time ordered. Also presented are the contents of the University of Chicago proportional counter registers from experiment 59-004A-01.
