Abstract : The data from which these records were made were provided by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, in digital form, on magnetic tapes. The data tapes contained magnetic field measurements from a three-component Schonstedt Instrument Company fluxgate magnetometer, the time of the measurements, and several other useful related measurements. Each sensor had a nominal range of + or - 1000 gammas in measurement of the magnetic field component along its sensitive axis. One sensor, the Z sensor, was aligned approximately (within 2 degrees) with the spin axis of the satellite throughout the flight.
