VG1 LECP 0.4S HIGH RESOLUTION SATURN FAR ENCOUNTER DATA

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This far encounter data set consists of electron and ion counting rate data from the Low Energy Charged Particle (LECP) experiment on Voyager 1 while the spacecraft was within the vicinity of Saturn. This instrument measures the intensities of in-situ charged particles ( >15 keV electrons and >30 keV ions) with various levels of discrimination based on energy range and mass species. A subset of almost 100 LECP channels are included in this data set. The LECP data are globally calibrated to the extent possible. During Saturn far encounter, the entire LEPT (Low Energy Particle Telescope) and part of the LEMPA (Low Energy Magnetospheric Particle Analyzer) subsystems were turned on for data collection. Particles include electrons, protons, alpha particles, and light, medium, and heavy nuclei particles. The far encounter data are 0.4 second rate measurements within 1/8 of the LECP instrumental motor rotation period (the angular scanning periods, or step period).
