Wednesday 24 November 2021, by Baptiste Cecconi

This collection is contains the Saturn narrow band radio emission catalogue derived from Cassini RPWS data. The collection supplements: Wu et al. (2021), Statistical Study of Spatial Distribution and Polarization for Saturn Narrowband Emissions. The Astrophysical Journal 918 (64). IOP Publishing. doi:10.3847/1538-4357/ac0af1.

Description

This collections contains two CSV files, providing the time intervals of each narrow band emission detected in the Cassini/RPWS dataset, as detailed in Wu et al. (2021):

  • NB20_list.txt: the 20-kHz event list.
  • NB5_list.txt: the 5-kHz event list.

It also contains two TFCat files, providing the same information using the TFCart specification (Cecconi et al. 2021):

  • NB20_list.json: the 20-kHz event list.
  • NB5_list.json: the 5-kHz event list.

The analysis was conducted on the Cassini/RWPS N2 and N3d goniopoalrimetric data (Cecconi et al. 2017a,b)

The table below describes the columns of the CSV data files:
