description
This product contains electron flux data (5.1-8 MeV) from the Cosmic Ray instrument on Voyager 2 from the Jupiter encounter. The data contains 15 minute averages of electron flux. The data were collected by detectors with a range between 10 and 16 mm of Si, or approximately 5.1-8 MeV. Accidental coincidence and dead time corrections are generally small in the magnetotail and have not been applied to these data. Because of differences between Voyager 1 and 2, we give the average rate for HET I and II for Voyager 1 and the HET I rate for Voyager 2. From the header data file: 07/03/79 00:00:00 to 08/03/79 23:45:00 A = (IBS3E / 1.200E 00) IBS3E = ^C2.C3.C4.B2.B1.^SB.G1 B = (IBS3E / 1.200E 00) IBS3E = ^C2.C3.C4.B2.B1.^SB
