ResourceID
spase://NASA/NumericalData/STEREO-A/PLASTIC/Fe-abundance/PT2H

Description

This data product contains 2-hour averaged values of solar wind
iron flow speed, density, thermal speed, iron to proton density ratio,
and quality flags for each of these parameters. It also contains the iron
charge state used in the V and Vth (1D Maxwellian) fitting algorithm

Fe charge state histogram
ParameterKey
Fe_Q
Description

Fe charge state histograms. Example: bin 10 includes all calculated charge states 10.0 less than or equal to Q and less than 11.0. Avg Q may be calculated by combining the counts at each bin with the bin value of bin +0.5
