description
This is the first version of this product converted to PDS4. The DOI provided references the PDS3 source data set. Moments are generated from Cassini CAPS data and are partially described in the CAPS guide for users found at the PDS web site: http://ppi.pds.nasa.gov/search/view/?f=yes&id=pds://PPI/COCAPS_1SAT/DOCUMENT A brief description of the columns follows.

H+ density. Please note the difference between a value of 0.000 and -1. The 0.000 corresponds to a valid determination that is just extremely low (and there is no confidence in the actual quantitative value, other than that it is very low), whereas the fill value corresponds to an invalid determination, usually caused by problems in the integration process.
