Rosetta-Orbiter RPCICA Earth Swing-by 1 Resampled Corrected in Counts Data


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

Abstract: This dataset contains corrected and RESAMPLED RAW DATA from the RPCICA instrument on mission ROSETTA during the first Earth swingby. The data has been corrected for cross-talk using an automatic algorithm, and noise has been treated to be even regardless of onward noise suppression. The data is the same as L4 CORR but in counts, not physical units. The data may due to noise treatment have negative values. Due to an overheating event RPC-ICA only obtained data from the deep tail at about 200 RE tailward distance. Protons at about 10 KeV energy were observed throughout the observation period. Magnetosheath like populations of protons and alpha particles were observed during most of the observation period.
