L-Ordered Electron and Proton Data

NSSDCA ID: SPMS-00646

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

Time span: 1964-01-21 to 1965-12-31

Description

This investigator-supplied data set containing electron and proton count rates is on 7-track, 800-bpi, BCD magnetic tapes written on an IBM 7094 computer. The tapes have a 167-word block size, and a word contains 36 bits. The heading for each record is the maximum and minimum L values for the file, and the time period included in the file. In addition, the file contains at discrete intervals McIlwain's L-shell parameter, geomagnetic field value, log B/Bo, and detector counts. These count rates are in units of counts per second in each discrimination state for the electron-data tapes, and for each bias mode for the proton-data tapes. There are 62 files, dividing the data into L intervals from 1 to 7.
