Description

The data set contains the catalogue of Faraday rotation patches identified in Saturn Kilometric Radiation (SKR) observations by Cassini/RPWS/HFR, and published in Taubenschuss et al. (2021).

The data is provided in two instances: the internal raw data format, used by the team, and a JSON formatted file, following the TFCat specification (Cecconi et al. 2021a). The conversion script requires the use of the TFCat module (Cecconi et al. 2021b).

Data files

  • Internal data format: cas_scan_all.thp (use thp_file_read.pro to read it with IDL).
