Rosetta-Orbiter COSIMA In-Flight and 67P Data thru March 2015

A newer version of this data set has been publicly released. Go here for the current version.


Abstract: The Rosetta COSIMA data contains the operational history of the 72 dust collecting substrates from the installation inside the instrument. The operations are either expose, storage, spectra, total intensity, heating, imaging or grain lists. The data is grouped by the substrate and time. Up to the 2014-08 the aim of the data has been the instrument health and operational functionality, not statistically significant substrate background spectra. From 2014-08 onward the D0 substrate set was used to collect dust collected in the vicinity of 67P/CHURYUMOV-GERASIMENKO 1 (1969 R1) and dust analysis with TOF-SIMS. From 2014-10-23 onward due to an instrument failure, the SIMS data became scientifically unusable. While other SIMS parameter sets were tested, substrates CF were exposed from mid 2015-12 and C7 from mid 2015-02. This data set supersedes all previous COSIMA datasets, like RO-C-COSIMA-3-V1.0, RO-CAL-COSIMA-2-V1.0 and RO-CAL-COSIMA-3-V3.0. Also, in the above previous versions, the values of the temperature in the HK data where given in Celsius although Kelvin was written in the description of the table in the FMT file.
