ASCII Listing of Ion Distribution Function Data

This page provides ASCII listings of Geotail LEP ion distribution function data (12 sec sampling) for any available intervals through interactive forms.

1. Select date and time interval.

Start Time (HHMMSS): End Time (HHMMSS):

2. Select an editor.

2D: Editor-B (DSN) 3D: Editor-A (UDSC/USC)

The Geotail satellite has two editors onboard: The Editor-A data are only acquired with the real-time operation in Usuda Deep Space Center (UDSC) or Uchinoura Space Center (USC), Japan, while the Editor-B data are continuously recorded in the onboard tape recorders for 24 hours and are dumped to the NASA JPL Deep Space Network (DSN) stations.

Editor-A contains 3D distribution functions, while only 2D data are available in Editor-B.
