ISEE 3 Merged Vector Helium Magnetometer (MAG), and Solar WInd Plasma (SWP), 2 min CDF Data

ResourceID
spase://NASA/NumericalData/ISEE3/Merged/MAG_SWP/CDF/PT2M

Description

These Files provides access to ISEE 3 Merged Field and Plasma 2-min data generated at the NSSDC as part of preparing ISEE 3 data for the creation of new OMNI data sets. Input to the data set were ISEE 3 Magnetometer, MAG, 1 min Data, Solar Wind Plasma, SWP, 24 s data, and spacecraft position 1 day data, all obtained from ftps://spdf.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/data/isee/isee3/. Pertinent documentation may be found at the same FTP directory. The annual files of this ASCII data set may be accessed at ftps://spdf.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/data/isee/isee3/2_min_merged_mag_plasma/as well. Time span: magnetic field from 1978-09-11 to 1982-10-12 and solar wind plasma from 1978-09-11 to 1980-02-19. Note that the magnetic field is given in Spacecraft-Centered, Solar Ecliptic, SE, coordinates.
