VOYAGER 2 SATURN PLASMA DERIVED ELECTRON BROWSE 96 SEC

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

THIS DATA SET CONTAINS THE THERMAL ELECTRON DENSITY AND TEMPERATURE IN THE PLS ENERGY RANGE (10-5950 EV) FROM VOYAGER 2 AT SATURN DERIVED BY FITTING THE LOW ENERGY ELECTRON COMPONENT WITH A MAXWELLIAN DISTRIBUTION, AND THE MOMENT DENSITY AND TEMPERATURE OF THE HOT ELECTRONS CALCULATED AFTER THE SIGNAL FROM THE THERMAL COMPONENT IS SUBTRACTED FROM THE ELECTRON SPECTRA. IT IS A SUBSET OF THE DATA SET VG2-S-PLS-5-ELE-FIT-96.0SEC WHICH SHOULD BE OBTAINED BEFORE THIS DATA IS USED. SPACECRAFT CHARGING MAY RESULT IN FACTOR OF 2-3 ERRORS IN THE THERMAL ELECTRON DENSITY.
