Data Set Abstract This data set consists of 4-second edited, wave electric field intensities from the Voyager 1 Plasma Wave Receiver spectrum analyzer obtained in the vicinity of the Jovian magnetosphere. For each 4-second interval, a field strength is determined for each of the 16 spectrum analyzer channels whose center frequencies range from 10 Hertz to 56.2 kiloHertz and which are logarithmically spaced in frequency, four channels per decade. The time associated with each set of intensities (16 channels) is the time of the beginning of the scan. During data gaps where complete 4-second spectra are missing, no entries exist in the file, that is, the gaps are not zero-filled or tagged in any other way. When one or more channels are missing within a scan, the missing measurements are zero-filled. Data are edited but not calibrated. The data numbers in this data set can be plotted in raw form for event searches and simple trend analysis since they are roughly proportional to the log of the electric field strength. Calibration procedures and tables are provided for use with this data set described below.
