New Data Arrive at NSSDC

Volume 11, Number 2, June 1995
By Joseph King
The March issue of the NSSDC News identified the recent initiation of NSSDC's archiving of COBE/DIRBE data, IRAS zodiacal observation history files, Pioneer 10 daily UV data; Ulysses gamma ray (GRB), solar wind (SWOOPS), and ion composition (SWICS) data; and Voyager 1 and 2 Cosmic Ray Spectrometer flux data.

Additional data products that arrived first in 1995 at NSSDC include Dynamics Explorer 1 magnetic field data at 16 vectors/sec resolution, ATLAS 1 (shuttle) ENAP/ISO data related to atmospheric emissions stimulated by precipitation of energetic neutral atoms, ISEE 1 and 2 4-sec magnetic field data (with final processing), Pioneer 10 and 11 energetic particle data from the University of Iowa at 15-min resolution, and Ulysses plasma wave (URAP) and charged particle flux (HI-SCALE) data.

A new version of the COBE/DIRBE Explanatory Supplement was made available on the World Wide Web (WWW) at URL

Flows of data into NSSDC continue for many on-going missions: IUE, ROSAT, ASCA, YOHKOH, IMP 8 (field, plasma, and some particle data now at NSSDC through the end of 1994).

From the Planetary Data System NSSDC has received data from several planetary missions, including Galileo, Magellan, Pioneer Venus, Viking, and Voyager. There is a WWW page tracking incoming planetary data sets at URL

Further details on these and other NSSDC-held data sets are available from the NASA Master Directory and NSSDC Master Catalog electronically accessible at URL
