REMS ACQ.FMT question

Recommended Posts

rtphokie    0

If I'm reading search results correctly, only sensor acquisition REMS EDR data is available here.  That means I must convert the data given in "counts" to whatever temperature unit I'm interested in (e.g. Kelvin) or pressure units or whatever.

 

Can someone point me to the document that gives guidance on how to do this?  Preferably with some info on how calibration of this data works?

You don't need to convert the EDR data. REMS RDR data in physical units are available at the PDS Atmospheres Node, direct link http://atmos.nmsu.edu/PDS/data/mslrem_1001/.

 

What search tool did you use that led you to the EDRs but not the RDRs?

 

I'd gone through the Curiosity Analysts Notebook and filtered on REMS as the instrument.  Search returned EDRs but no RDRs.

 

Does the PDS Atmospheres Node,  link above have data in the ENVRDR3 format (i.e. temps in Kelvin, pressures in Pascal, etc.)

 

Thanks!

Tony

Yes, I believe it includes ENVRDR3 data, but I'm guessing because I see the format file ENVRDR3.FMT in the LABEL directory. I'm no REMS expert. If you have trouble finding what you need, please ask the PDS Atmospheres Node contact for REMS, Lyle Huber (lhuber@nmsu.edu).
