Hourly Averaged Electron-Proton Data

NSSDC ID: SPHE-00207

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

Time span: 1976-01-15 to 1980-03-08

Description

These tapes were written by a PDP 11/40 in binary code. Each tape has a single file, blocked in 4464 bytes. Each block contains four 1-hr averages. Electron as well as proton averages pertain to 16 sectors in the ecliptic plane, with sector 1 pointing to the sun. For each sector, the electron data pertain to 15 energy channels, spanning the total range of 17-835 keV, plus a channel that counts electrons of energy > 835 keV. Likewise, for protons, 15 channels cover the total range of 21-677 keV; the 16th channel counts protons of E > 677 keV.
