Data Set Abstract This data set includes Voyager 2 Jupiter encounter magnetometer data from the Low Field Magnetometer (LFM) resampled at a 9.6 second sample rate from the 60 msec instrument sampling rate. Data coverage begins in the solar wind and continues until at least the first magnetopause crossing. The data are given in Jovicentric System III(1965) right handed coordinates. The data set is composed of the following columns: 1) time - UT of the sample in the format yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss.sssZ, 2) spacecraft clock values (m65536:mod60:fds_line), 3) mag_id - magnetometer id (1 = LFM, 2 = HFM), 4) Br - radial (Jupiter to spacecraft) B-field component, 5) Btheta - North/South (system III) B-field component (positive southward), 6) Bphi - azimuthal (system III) B-field component (positive eastward), 7) Bmag - magnitude of the averaged magnetic field components, 8) avg_Bmag - average of the magnetic field magnitudes, 9) delta - magnetic latitude = arcsin(Btheta/Bmag), 10) lambda - longitude = 180. - atan(Bphi/-Br), 11-13) rms_br, rms_bt, and rms_bn - rms vectors, 14) npts - number of points in average. All magnetic field observations are measured in nanoTesla. All of the magnetic field data are calibrated (see the instrument calibration description for more details).
