TITLE: Format for Pioneer-11 CRT Cruise Data Archive Data Set
DESCR: Format description of the Pioneer-11 Cosmic Ray Telescope
cruise phase energetic particle data measurements
archive data set, April 1973 through 1994.
REL_DATE: 1991-03-15
UPDATE: 2008-11-05. This file was updated to reflect (a) addition
of uniform end-of-record marker (LF) in data set files,
(b) replacement of 6-month files with annual files,
(c) change of value in statistical error fields
(-1E+00 to 1.0E+031), (d) update end date from
6/30/1990 to 12/31/1994, (e) update Nand Lal contact
information, (f) delete time range from each "field
range" below except for the time field.

RECORD_SYNTAX: Following the TIME field, there are two numbers for each of the
remaining fields. The first number represents the value of the entity and the
second denotes the statistical (Poisson) error in the value. When the error is
1.000000e+031, data for the quantity are not available. A zero in the error
subfield indicates that the quantity was measured, but no counts were detected.
There are no delimiters between members of the pair belonging to a field, nor
are there any delimiters between fields.
