PLASTIC Data Plots
Note About Data Gaps
- August 19, 2014: Telemetry is reduced in preparation for Solar Conjunction. No composition data available after this date.
- December 17, 2014: Science data for PLASTIC ends.
- July 2015: Return from Solar Conjunction. Still in reduced telemetry mode.
- September 26, 2014: Shut down for Solar Conjunction Test.
- October 1, 2014: Communication with spacecraft lost. Recovery attempts ongoing.
Not all plots are updated daily. Ones that end before the present include:
Position Spectrograms: These end after Dec. 2013 because we stopped getting this data in order to save telemetry.
WAP Bfield: These are updated as MAG data becomes available. (Currently through Dec. 2013)
- Proton Parameters: Bulk Velocity, Density, and Temperature derived from a 1D Maxwellian fit of PLASTIC data.
- Proton Velocity Components: HERTN and RTN velocity components and flow angles derived from a 1D Maxwellian fit of PLASTIC data.
- Proton Condegrams: Bulk Velocity, Density, and Temperature derived from a 1D Maxwellian fit of PLASTIC data. Condegram Plots.
- Protons Projected to Earth: Stereo A and B times have been translated to Earth's heliocentric distance and longitude for comparison with Wind SWE key parameters (ftp://cdaweb.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/istp/, courtesy K. Ogilvie, SWE PI). Data are otherwise unmodified.
- On-Board Proton Moments: Bulk Velocity, Density, and Temperature derived from on-board (IDPU) moment calculations. These data are updated on a daily basis, but are not fully validated.
- Solar Wind Stack Plots: Time series of the solar wind full resolution rate.
- He+ Plots: Explanation.
