Data Set Abstract This data set includes Voyager 2 Saturn encounter magnetometer data given in Heliographic coordinates and averaged from the 60 ms instrument sample rate to a 9.6 second resampled rate. The data set consists of the following columns: 1) UT of the sample in the format yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss.sssZ, 2) spacecraft clock (m65536:mod60:fds-line), 3) magnetometer id (1 = LFM, 2 = HFM), 4) Br (radial, Sun to spacecraft, B-field component), 5) Bt (azimuthal B-field component, positive in the direction of planetary orbital motion), 6) Bn (North/South B-field component, positive northward), 7) Bmag (magnitude of the averaged components), 8) avg_Bmag (average of the magnetic field magnitudes), 9) delta (latitude = arcsin(Bn/Bmag)), 10) lambda (longitude = 180. - atan(Bt/Br)), 11-13) 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).
