=============================================================================
Introduction                                                                 
=============================================================================
This volume contains data from the Cassini Orbiter Magnetospheric Imaging    
Instrument (MIMI). It includes LEMMS data from the interval 1999-003 (3 Jan) 
to 2016-274 (30 Sep).                                                        
                                                                             
This volume is intended for the use of scientists and students in the study  
of solar wind and planetary energetic and neutral particles. The data may be 
used for research and publication.                                           
                                                                             
This volume contains uncalibrated data from the Cassini Magnetospheric       
Imaging Instrument Low Energy Magnetospheric Measurement System (LEMMS).     
The data are given in uncalibrated events and particle counts.               
                                                                             
This volume complies with Planetary Data System (PDS) standards, Version     
3.6, described in Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) document JPL D-7669.

Volume format                                                                
=============================================================================
                                                                             
The volume is organized into a hierarchical directory structure. The disk    
contains both the Universal Disk Format (UDF) and the ISO 9660 (level 2)     
file system standards in order to accommodate users on a wide variety of     
platforms.                                                                   
                                                                             
All science data are located under the DATA directory. The INDEX directory   
contains a listing of all of the data products included on this volume. The  
CATALOG directory contains PDS documentation describing the mission,         
spacecraft, instrument, and data set. These include:                         
                                                                             
  CO_MIMI_LEMMS_DS.CAT   MIMI LEMMS uncalibrated data set description        
  CO_MIMI_REF.CAT        MIMI reference information                          
  CO_MIMI_INST.CAT               MIMI instrument description                 
  CO_INST_HOST.CAT           Cassini orbiter spacecraft description          
  CO_MISSION.CAT            Cassini-Huygens mission description              
  CO_MIMI_PERSON.CAT             MIMI personnel contact information          
  CO_PROJREF.CAT            Cassini project reference information            
                                                                             
                                                                             
=============================================================================
File formats                                                                 
=============================================================================
The data files on this volume are provided in ASCII comma-separated value    
(CSV) format. Note that some of the CSV files contained on this volume may be
larger than the maximum limit imposed by some spreadsheet applications.      
Caution should be used to insure that the data are handled correctly. Each   
data file is also accompanied by a detached PDS label file (.LBL extension), 
an ASCII file containing information describing the data file and data record
format.                                                                      
                                                                             
Catalog files (.CAT extension) are provided in ASCII format. Note, however,  
that as '.CAT' is a reserved file extension under MS Windows it may be       
necessary to specify a text editor when opening PDS catalog files.           
                                                                             
Document files describing the volume, the data and data-calibration software 
are included in the volume.  These files are given in MS Word, HTML and ASCII
formats.                                                                     
                                                                             
Text files and detached label files contain 80-byte fixed-length ASCII       
records, with a carriage-return character (ASCII 13) in the 79th byte and a  
line-feed character (ASCII 10) in the 80th byte. This format allows the files
to be read by MacOS, DOS, UNIX and VMS operating systems. Note that while    
both label and catalog files are ASCII, some operating systems will not      
recognize the .LBL and .CAT extensions as ASCII types. It may be necessary to
either remap these extensions as ASCII in the system or text browser, or else
to open the files from within the text browser.
