ARCAD LOW ENERGY PARTICLES DATA SET

This data set contains fluxes and pitch angles (relative to measured magnetic field) of protons and electrons as measured in the lower half of the energy steps of the electrostatic analyzers, that is, at "<10 ev," 40 eV and 0.76 keV, 60 eV and 1.2 keV, and 100 eV and 1.8 keV. The indicated pairings correspond to simultaneous measurements in the low and medium energy analyzers. Time resolution is variable according to the memory mode being used at any time, ranging between 10 msec and 2.56 sec. Each data file corresponds to one memory readout, and typically consists of a few continuous-data segments. This ASCII data set also contains needed spacecraft position data.

The data set (originally generated at IKI/Russia, PI Y.I.Galperin) is placed at anonymous FTP site At this site a user can find a description of data and experiment .

Time span of data set: 81-10-01 - 82-03-01
Energy level for energy steps (NSTEP) and Time span for every file is given in "particle.tab" file.
