The CATALOG directory contains mission, host, instrument, reference,
personnel, and data set PDS catalog objects for this archive volume. The
files follow the 'streamlined' format adopted by the Planetary Data System
(PDS) in late 1993 and documented in the Planetary Data System Standards
Reference (Version 3.1, 3 August 1994; JPL D-7669, Part 2).
Each catalog object is in ASCII, with a maximum of 80 characters per
line. Each line is delimited with a carriage-return (ASCII 13) line-feed
(ASCII 10) pair.
The files are:
A brief description of the mission. It includes a chronology of events,
definition of mission phases, and science objectives.
A description of the Galileo spacecraft and a very brief overview of
the NASA Deep Space Network.
An overview of the spacecraft radio system used for these experiments
on Galileo, and a summary (albeit long) description of the Deep Space
Network instrumentation which support radio science experiments. Also
included are summaries of the science objectives sought using the instrument.
A listing of references used elsewhere in the catalog files and of
references that might be generally useful in working with these data.
A listing of key people involved in analyzing the radio data and in
producing the archival data set.
A description of the data set contained in the archival volume. The
file includes information on the data types included in the archive
