Rosetta-Orbiter RPCICA Prelanding 67P Derived Moment Data


Special Note: The download files once uncompressed may be up to about 100x their size.

Abstract: This dataset contains DERIVED MOMENT data of ion density and ion bulk velocity for masses 1,2,4 and 18 amu / e, from the RPCICA instrument on mission ROSETTA during the prelanding phase. Data contains measurements of an undisturbed solar wind until Rosetta was close enough to the comet to obtain measurements of the solar wind interaction with the atmosphere of target comet 67P.
