This data set contains the ion densities and temperatures along with formal 1 Sigma errors obtained from Voyager 2 PLS data (voltage range 10-5950 eV/Q) at Uranus by fitting the measured spectra with isotropic Maxwellian distributions. Up to three isotropic proton components (warm, hot and intermediate) were used to match the observations. The plasma was assumed to be rigidly corotating. Uncertainties in plasma parameters are a factor of 2 in the charging region from 1939-2158 on day 24, less than 20% elsewhere. A complete description of this data set is given in McNutt et al. (1987) and Selesnick and McNutt (1987).
