Overview:
=========
This data set contains instrument raw data obtained by the Ion Composition
Analyzer (RPC-ICA) onboard ESA's ROSETTA spacecraft.


MARS RPC-ICA Data Archive
=========================

a) DATA
=======

CODMAC Level/Type    Data Type    Data Content

  2 / EDITED Data    table        RAW data of ICA, HK data and GEOMETRY data

The data can be found in directories of this type:
DATA/EDITED/2004/SEP/D23

DATA/EDITED/year/month/Dday/*.TAB (ICA, HK and GEOMETRY data files)
                            *.LBL (PDS LABEL files for the data files)
All data files are in ASCII text format.

b) Supporting files
===================
Supporting files for the Archive user include PDS descriptions, documents,
and searchable indices. These have been organized into five directories one
level below the root: BROWSE, CALIB, CATALOG, DOCUMENT, GEOMETRY & INDEX.

                             Structure of the Volume

         BROWSE_INDEX.LBL  (PDS LABEL file for BROWSE_INDEX.TAB)
         BROWSE_INDEX.TAB  (Index of the BROWSE directory in tabular format)

The ROSETTA project decided that the data would be archived in the PDS
format. Consequently, the layout of this volume and the labels for each file
conform the PDS guidelines.
