The present volume contains the combined results from the particle            
analyser and magnetometer experiments repackaged as a single-dataset          
volume, extracted from the legacy volume described below.

This CD-ROM contains data obtained by participants in ESA's Giotto            
Extended Mission and assembled for archiving jointly by ESA's GEM             
Project and the Small Bodies Node of NASA's Planetary Data System             
(PDS).  This volume includes spacecraft measurements during the               
July 10, 1992 encounter with comet 26P/Grigg-Skjellerup as listed below.

In addition to the spacecraft measurements, sets of ground based              
images, using various filters, have been included in the archive.             
A collection of 33 CCD images from 1986 through 1993 were                     
submitted by H. Boehnhardt and G. Matella while two images on July 25,        
1992, just after the encounter, were provided by A. Rotundi.                  
Supporting files for the Archive user include PDS descriptions, documents,    
searchable indices, a mission ephemeris, and software tools (code as well     
as IDL procedures).  These have been organized into five directories one      
level below the root: CATALOG, DOCUMENT, EPHEMRIS, INDEX, and SOFTWARE.       
An overview of the GEM mission is provided in the DOCUMENT directory          
along with digitized articles from ESA SP-1077, describing the instruments.   
(Note that these articles, which were digitized using a convention developed  
by the International Halley Watch, are set for fixed width of 132 bytes;      
other digitized document or text files follow current PDS guidelines.)        
The data directories are signified by an experiment abbreviation (see outline 
below) plus the special case when the JPA and MAG data are presented in       
merged files which have been resampled in time.  A final data directory       
(IMAGES) contains the ground-based images submitted as part of the archive.

The GEM project in consultation with the Small Bodies Node decided that       
the data would be archived in the PDS format.   Consequently, the layout      
of this volume and the labels for each file conform to PDS guidelines.        
The components of this data collection, however, are not fully compliant      
since they have not been through a formal PDS peer review.   The data         
suppliers individually address the validity of the data.                      
We wish to acknowledge the work of each PI for the eight GEM experiment       
teams as well as the special efforts of A. Coates, P. Daly, N. McBride,       
M. Paetzold, and J. -B. Renard in supplying the relevant data.   The GEM      
project through the efforts of T. Morley supplied the ephemeris code          
and explanatory files.    The entire Small Bodies Node staff was              
responsible for the development of the software and preparation of the        
CDROM archive.   The GEM project completed the final production of the        
booklet and CDROM.   The distribution of the GEM archive is being             
handled jointly by both groups.

The catalog files and labels on this volume were updated to adhere to         
current PDS standards.  Note that the data will never be subject to a         
full PDS external peer review, and thus will be given a status of             
"SAFED" (i.e., save-the-bits) in the PDS catalog.

Documented errata have been applied to these files.
