These data were obtained from the JPL magnetometer experiment on ICE (Principal Investigator: E.J. Smith produces three, high-accuracy, triaxial measurements per second of the magnetic field strength in 8 ranges, i.e., +/-4 nT (lowest full range), 14, 42, 144, 640, 4000, 22000, and 140000 nT (highest full range) and a sensitivity of 1/256 of each full range, in a 0-3 Hz pass band. During the G-Z encounter the instrument range was switched automatically between the 4 lowest ranges depending on the field intensity, giving sensitivities of 0.015, 0.051, 0.17 and 0.57 nT respectively. The time resolution is 1/3 sec from the start of Day 253 (September 10, 1985) until Day 255 (September 12, 1985), 18:38. At that time the bit rate dropped from 1024 to 512 bps, and the time resolution decreased to 2/3 sec.
