Medium Energy Cosmic Ray Data Pool Plots on Microfilm

NSSDCA ID: SPHE-00147

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

Time span: 1978-08-12 to 1987-02-07

Description

These data are contained on 35-mm microfilm reels. The data are plotted vs time in sets of 10 types of plots for each day. Each type of plot shows the magnetic field magnitude, flags indicating when the spacecraft maneuvering unit was on, and the spacecraft position in GSE coordinates (in Re) at a specified time during the day, plus outputs of the investigator's quick-look algorithms for one of the following experiments: solar wind plasma (78-079A-01A), magnetic fields (-02A), low-energy cosmic rays (-03A), medium-energy cosmic rays (-04A), cosmic ray electrons and nuclei (-06A), plasma waves (-07C), energetic protons (-08D),interplanetary and solar electrons (-09C), radio mapping (-10A), and X-ray and gamma-ray bursts (-14D). The medium-energy cosmic ray experiment data plotted are the 15-min-averaged preliminary counting rates for protons and alpha particles and Z>2 particles. The count rates are given for two energy ranges, which for protons (and alphas) are 4 to 57 and 18 to 70 MeV/nucleon.
