Magellan Radio Tracking Data

December 2, 2014. The Magellan Radio Tracking archive has completed peer review. Additions have been made to this data set since it was first posted here in September 2013 while still in lien resolution. See AAREADME.TXT and ERRATA.TXT for details.

This archive contains Magellan radio tracking data in the form of ATDF and ODF files. Also included are ancillary data in directories AMD (angular momentum desaturation events), ION (Earth's ionosphere), TRO (Earth's troposphere), and WEA (weather conditions near DSN stations), and documentation in the DOCUMENT directory. See AAREADME.TXT for an overview.
