Overview:
=========
This data set contains instrument raw data obtained by the Fluxgate
Magnetometer (RPC-MAG) onboard the ROSETTA spacecraft from the
COMET ESCORT4 Phase, for the time interval October 21, 2015 until
January 12, 2016. Included in this dataset are the measurements of




MTP0022 - STP0079 from 2015-10-20T23:25 to 2015-10-27T23:25
MTP0022 - STP0080 from 2015-10-27T23:25 to 2015-11-03T23:25
MTP0022 - STP0081 from 2015-11-03T23:25 to 2015-11-10T23:25
MTP0022 - STP0082 from 2015-11-10T23:25 to 2015-11-17T23:25

MTP0024 - STP0088 from 2015-12-22T23:25 to 2015-12-29T23:25
MTP0024 - STP0089 from 2015-12-29T23:25 to 2016-01-05T23:25

The magnetometer consists of two sensors, the OB and the IB sensor,
mounted on a spacecraft boom. The instrument provides 3 component
magnetic field vector data measured by both sensors.
vector data measured by both sensors. In this data set edited raw data can be
found. Magnetic field data are given in ADCcounts.


REMARK:
 Due to strong magnetic disturbance by the ORBITER,
 the magnetic field data are influenced by s/c generated
 magnetic fields. The source of these disturbance is manifold:
  - transient currents flowing on the spacecraft
  - Heater pulses
  - Thruster related magnetic field
  - Reaction wheel signatures
  - etc.

  Due to the complexity of these circumstances a proper data
  cleaning is an ongoing task. Thus  the data of the present dataset
  still contain the mentioned disturbance signatures.

  Therefore, any use of the data for scientific research has to be
  done under consideration of these disturbances.

===========

CODMAC Level/Type               Data Type      Data Content

          2 / EDITED RAW Data   table          RAW TS of OB,IB,HK data


The data can be found in the

./DATA/EDITED/2015/OCT
./DATA/EDITED/2015/NOV
./DATA/EDITED/2015/DEC
./DATA/EDITED/2016/JAN


directory. This directory has three subdirectories for HK,IB, and OB data.


b) Supporting files
======================

Supporting files for the Archive user include PDS descriptions,
documents, and searchable indices. These have been organized into
three directories one level below the root: CATALOG, DOCUMENT,INDEX.


Structure of the volume
========================

AAREADME.TXT  (PDS required introduction to the data set)
VOLDESC.CAT   (PDS required volume description of the data only)

./CATALOG/CATINFO.TXT (list of catalog files)
          *.CAT       (Mission, spacecraft, instrument, data, references)



./DOCUMENT/DOCINFO.TXT  (list of documents)
           *.PDF        (PDF documents)

./INDEX/INDXINFO.TXT    (Description of the contents of the index
                         directory)
        INDEX.LBL       (PDS LABEL file for INDEX.TAB)
        INDEX.TAB       (Index of the data set in tabular format)

./DATA/EDITED/*.TAB     (MAG data, 3 components presented as ASCII tables)
              *.LBL     (PDS LABELS of the MAG data files)

The ROSETTA project 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 the PDS/PSA guidelines.
