which is ejected from the Sun into the interplanetary
medium.

Facets
enumeration ActivityIndex
An indication, derived from one or more measurements,
of the level of activity of an object or region,
such as sunspot number, F10.7 flux, Dst, or
the Polar Cap Indices.
enumeration ChargedParticleFlux
Measurements of fluxes of charged or ionized
particles at above thermal energies, including
relativistic particles of solar and galactic
origin. May give simple fluxes, but more complete
distributions are sometimes possible. Composition
measurements may also be made.
enumeration Dopplergram
A map or image depicting the spatial distribution
of line-of-sight velocities of the observed
object.
enumeration DynamicSpectra
A three-dimensional representation of successive
spectra which allows time evolution to be
clearly seen. Time is plotted along the abscissa,
frequency (or particle energy) along the ordinate,
and the spectral power density (or differential
particle flux) is represented by different
shades of grey, or color. This representation
is also known as a spectrogram.
enumeration ElectricField
Measurements of electric field vectors (sometimes
not all components) as a time series.
enumeration EnergeticParticles

or object such as the Sun or the polar auroral
regions; can be in any wavelength band, and
polarized, etc.
enumeration IonComposition

or density of electrically charged particles
in the space environment. May give simple
fluxes, but full distribution functions are
sometimes measured.
enumeration Irradiance
A radiometric term for the power of electromagnetic
radiation at a surface, per unit area. "Irradiance"
is used when the electromagnetic radiation
is incident on the surface. The SI unit of
irradiance is watts per square meter (W·m-2).
enumeration MagneticField
Measurements of magnetic field vectors (sometimes
not all components) as time series; can be
space- or ground-based. Also, [Zeeman splitting,
etc. based]: A region of space near a magnetized

magnetic field determined from remote sensing
measurements of the detailed structure of
spectral lines, including their splitting

Measurements of a quantity as a function of
height above an object such as the limb of
a body.

A radiometric measurement that describe the
amount of electromagnetic radiation that passes
through or is emitted from a particular area,

is watts per steradian per square meter (W·sr-1·m-2).
enumeration RadioandPlasmaWaves

using electric or magnetic antennas at frequencies
anywhere between the spacecraft spin frequency
and the characteristic frequencies of the
ambient plasma.  The output can be waveform,

and possibly other parameters of the space
environment by active probing of the plasma
by radio waves.
enumeration ThermalPlasma
Measurements of the plasma in the energy regime
where the most of the plasma occurs.  May

functions or the derived bulk parameters (density,
flow velocity, etc.).

A description of the standardized measurement
increments in which a value is specified.
The description is represented as a mathematical
phrase. Individual units within the phrase
must conform to the International System of
Units (SI) which is maintained by BIPM (Bureau
International des Poids et Mesures. See <http://www.bipm.fr/>
). The symbol associated with a unit should
be used in the phrase. Within the phrase the
circumflex (^) is used to indicate a power,
a star (*) is used to indicate multiplication
and a slash (/) division. When symbols are
not separated by a mathematical operator,
multiplication is assumed. Symbols for base
units can be found at: <http://www.bipm.fr/en/si/si_brochure/chapter2/2-1/#symbols>

Annotations
The multiplicative factor for converting a
unit into International System of Units (SI)
units. The factor is expressed in the form
"number > x", where "number" is a numerical
value and "x" is the appropriate SI units.
The basic SI units are Enumerated: m (meter),
N (newton), kg (kilogram), Pa (pascal), s
(second), Hz (hertz), A (ampere), V (volt),
K (kelvin), W (watt), rad (radian), J (joule),
sr (steradian), C (coulomb), T (tesla), ohm
(ohm), mho (mho or seimens), H (henry), and
F (farad). Two useful units which are not
SI units are: degree (angle), and unitless
(no units). An example is: "1.0E-5>T" which
converts the units, presumable nT, to tesla.
Another example is: "1.0e-1>km/s" which converts
a velocity expressed in meters per second
to kilometers per second.

Facets
enumeration Average
The statistical mean; the sum of a set of
values divided by the number of values in
the set.
enumeration Circular
Relative to polarization, right-hand circularly
polarized light is defined such that the electric
field is rotating clockwise as seen by an
observer towards whom the wave is moving.
Left-hand circularly polarized light is defined
such that the electric field is rotating counterclockwise
as seen by an observer towards whom the wave
is moving. The polarization of magnetohydrodynamic
waves is specified with respect to the ambient
mean magnetic field : right-hand polarized
waves have a transverse electric field component
which turns in a right-handed sense (that
of the gyrating electrons
