Hourly Averaged Interplanetary Magnetic Field Vector Plots

NSSDCA ID: SPHE-00211

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

Time span: 1973-11-03 to 1974-04-11

Description

This data set consists of the GSFC X-692-76-208, "Mariner 10 Interplanetary Magnetic Field Measurements November 1973-March 1974" by K. W. Behannon and F. W. Ottens. The document contains two plots for each of six solar rotations. The plots contain hourly averaged field magnitude, field latitude and longitude angles in solar equatorial coordinates, and standard deviations. One plot per solar rotation is linear in time, and the other is linear in sub-spacecraft solar longitude. Two additional plots are given: one shows hourly averaged field magnitude, angles, and standard deviations vs spacecraft distance from the sun; and the other shows daily averages vs time.
