UARS Particle Environment Monitor (PEM) Level 3TP V001 (UARPE3TP) at GES DISC

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Particle Environment Monitor (PEM) Level 3TP data product consists of daily, 65.536 second and 2.048 interval time-ordered, vertical profiles of electron and proton rates. PEM was made up of four instruments: the Atmospheric X-Ray Imaging Spectrometer (AXIS), the High Energy Particle Spectrometer (HEPS), the Medium Energy Spectrometer (MEPS), and the Vector Magnetometer (VMAG). PEM was flown ... View entire text
