Galileo Orbiter Jupiter PLS Fitted Parameters Bundle Readme|
This bundle contains of all of the fitted parameters (both good and
bad) for fitting an ion species to the Galileo Plasma Science Experiment (PLS)
that were found during a grant from NASA's Jupiter Data Analysis Program
(NNX09AE03G). The 'good' results were used to publish:
Bagenal, F., R. J. Wilson, S. Siler, W. R. Paterson, and W. S. Kurth
(2016), Survey of Galileo plasma observations in Jupiter's plasma sheet,
J. Geophys. Res. Planets, 121, 871-894, doi:10.1002/2016JE005009.
Please cite this paper and this PDS bundle if you use this data.
These data have been reviewed by the coauthors of Bagenal, et al. 2016 and
their method and figures passed the journal's peer review. After submission
to the PDS, these data will be approved through the PDS peer review process.
Just because we found a mathematical fit to the data does not mean it is
physically viable, and indeed many are not. You must filter this data
carefully, but as guidance, the values we thought were good for our JGR
publication are flagged with the JGR object set to 1.
PDS4 documentation is all XML. There is an XML label for every product in
This bundle is organized into two collections, Data and Document.
* Data - Galileo PLS Fitted Parameters data from the for all Jupiter
orbits. These data have been formatted into ASCII tables.
(LID = urn:nasa:pds:go-pls-jup-fitted-parameters:data)
* Document - Documents included in or related to the bundle
(LID = urn:nasa:pds:go-pls-jup-fitted-parameters:document)
Users of these data are encouraged to acknowledge both the PDS and the
principal investigators of the instruments whose data is used in analysis
in all publications.
The person most directly responsible for the construction and release of
this bundle is Dr. Rob Wilson. Other PPI personnel who may be aware of
issues related to this bundle include Joe Mafi and Debra Kazden.
