Vega 1 Calibrated Dust Impact Mass Analyzer Observations of Comet Halley


Abstract: The data from MPI for this dataset were received as text files each containing spectra of a single instrument mode (there were several files for most modes). These spectra were reformatted into binary tables, and all spectra from each mode were combined into a single file. The original order of the spectra has been preserved. Spacecraft time, relative to switch-on of the instrument is specified as 1 clock tick = 0.11852 seconds. The exact equation is:
