Numerical Data Product: IBEX Background Monitor Counts

Resource ID
spase://VEPO/NumericalData/IBEX/BM/Counts/PT0.24S Get XML
Name
IBEX Background Monitor Counts
Description

Each record captures the counts of >~14 keV protons arriving at the IBEX Background Monitor. Also included are a time tag (seconds since 00:00 UT of January 6, 1980), an arrival direction (R.A. and Dec. in J2000 celestial coordinates), and the IBEX location. Data files are given for each 8-day orbit. The data files are in ASCII.

Note

Data are planned for 6-month releases. However, Release_2 contained only IBEX-Hi map data. Extensions to later times for this data set may be forthcoming in the future. Relative to the given 1-sec cadence, this is a typical value. Intervals between ENA arrivals vary greatly.
