Hourly Averaged Magnetic Field Vector Data

NSSDC ID: SPHE-00081

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

Time span: 1974-12-10 to 1979-06-30

Description

This data set was written by a HP-3000 computer tapes in binary code. Each logical record is 237 bytes long. It provides 1-hr average values of the solar-ecliptic X, Y, Z components of the magnetic field, in units of centi-gamma. Also available are the number of samples of each component in the averaging. The location of the spacecraft is specified in terms of ecliptic longitude, heliographic latitude, and radial distance from sun. Data quality flags are also included.
