Permissible Value(s)ValueValue Meaning
 CompositionDistribution of particle types
 Count RateParticle detections per accumulation interval
 CountsSensor particle detections (may include both raw and corrected counts)
 DensityParticle number or mass density
 Distribution FunctionParticle distribution
 Dynamic PressurePressure due to the kinetic motion of the particles
 Energy FluxParticle energy per unit area per time. This value should be used for differential and integral energy flux as well.
 Energy SpectraParticle distribution of energy
 FluxParticle detections per time per area
 Mass SpectraParticle distribution of mass-to-charge ratio
 Pitch Angle DistributionParticle distribution organized by magnetic-field direction
 Pulse Height AnalysisParticle energy spectra over a specified time interval
 TemperatureParticle distribution temperature
 Thermal PressurePressure due to the thermal motion of the particles
 Time of FlightParticle mass distribution determined by particle's measured momentum and time it take to travel between two sensors
 VelocityParticle bulk or vector velocity
