Plasma Wave Data Pool Plots with Electric and Magnetic Field Values on Microfilm

NSSDCA ID: SPMS-00419

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 plasma wave data are the peak electric or magnetic field values (uncalibrated output voltages in 5-min accumulations) from the 31 Hz, 1 kHz, and 31 kHz channels of the main 16-channel analyzer. Also shown is an indicator of the antenna in use: the magnetic search coil, or one of the electric antennas with effective lengths of 45 m (U axis or V axis) or of 0.6 m (short-E).
