Abstract : This report contains a summary and analysis of the reprocessing of 23 passes of GEOS-A SECOR data gathered on the SECOR southeast calibration quad in view of new information. The 23 passes that were reprocessed are the same passes that were placed in the NASA Space Sciences Data Center by GIMRADA in 1966. Also included are brief explanations and user guides for the computer programs developed to process and reduce satellite data in the GEOS format. These programs have been checked out and are operating on the CDC 3800 digital computer at the Naval Research Laboratory.
