1.2, 6, and 42 s Magnetic Field and Trajectory Plots for Mercury 1 and 3 Flybys


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

Time span: 1974-03-29 to 1975-03-16

Ancillary data are not needed for the proper use of these data


This data set consists of the NASA TM document, "Summary of Mariner 10 Magnetic Field and Trajectory Data for Mercury 1 and 3 Encounters" by R. P. Lepping, N. F. Ness, and K. W. Behannon. The document contains a summary compilation of the Mariner 10 magnetic field and associated trajectory data at Mercury 1 (March 29, 1974) and Mercury 3 (March 16, 1975) encounters. The field data are presented in useful plots and numerical listings of 1.2-, 6-, and 42-s averages along with summary figures and tables which have resulted from the studies of the GSFC Mariner 10 magnetometer team. A comprehensive bibliography is also included.
