International Halley Watch Archive (PDS)

NSSDCA ID: PSSB-00049

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

Time span: 1981-12-02 to 1989-04-12

Description

This data set consists of the data gathered as a result of the International Halley Watch (IHW) effort. The data are available only on CD-ROM. The first twenty-four volumes make up the entire remote sensing (ground-based, airborne, and earth-orbiting) component of the effort. Volumes 25 and 26 comprise the in situ observations made by the various spacecraft (Giotto, Suisei, Sakigake, Vega 1, and Vega 2, and ICE (ISEE-3)) sent to intercept comets Halley and Giacobini-Zinner. (Volumes 25 and 26 are only available as a set.) The various IHW disciplines (astrometry, infrared, large-scale phenomena, near-nucleus studies, photometry/polarimetry, spectroscopy/spectrophotometry, radio, amateur observations, and meteor studies) are all represented on the discs.

The data are provided with FITS headers and PDS labels, both separate from the data files. The CD-ROMs can be read on several different platforms, including DEC VAX or MicroVAX under VMS, SUN, Macintosh, and IBM PC computers. The imaging data on the CD-ROMs can be displayed by a number of different utilities (notably IMDISP for IBM PC compatibles and CD Browser and Image4PDS for Macintoshes, all available separately from NSSDC).

The data can be ordered from the NSSDC at: http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/cd-rom/web_store.cgi?catagory=halley

The data are also available on-line at: http://pdssbn.astro.umd.edu/sbnhtml/comets/IHW/
