Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) one-way laser ranging full rate data. These files contain the full rate data (all ranges collected) as delivered from the ground stations participating in one way ranging. Each file is an aggregate of full rate data collected for every station on a particular day. Note that this does not constitute the official data delivered by the LOLA mission; for these data, please visit the LOLA Planetary Data System listed in the reference. The ground station only data may be useful for those who wish to do their own transmit-receive pairing from onboard spacecraft data.
