GOES SPACE ENVIRONMENT MONITOR DATA on CD-ROM
January 1986 - Present
Put the single most comprehensive space environment data set at your finger tips!
A twin-fluxgate spinning sensor allows Earth's magnetic field to be described by three mutually perpendicular components. Field strength changes as small as 0.2 nanoTesla are measured.
Ion chamber detectors provide whole-Sun X-ray fluxes for the 0.5-to-4 and 1-to-8 Angström wavelength bands. These observations provide a sensitive means of detecting the start of solar flares.
Solar Particle Events
Solid-state detectors with pulse-height discrimination measure protons, alpha particles, and electrons. Because the spacecraft travel in a geostationary orbit, the lower energy channels respond primarily to trapped outer-zone particles. The remaining channels measure solar particles and Galactic Cosmic Rays.
The electron detector measures the flux of electrons with kinetic energies > 2 MeV. The proton detector measures 7 energy bands from .6 to 500 MeV. The alpha-particle detector measures 7 energy channels from 3.8 to 500 MeV.
GOES data at 3.06 second resolution can be placed on a custom designed CD-ROM.
