Abstract : A study of approximately 10 months of Explorer 14 observations of energetic electrons (E 1.6 MeV) in the outer radiation zone near the geomagnetic equator shows that if the omnidirectional intensity measurements are organized in a B-L system based upon surface measurements of the geomagnetic field, a large local-time dependence of intensities on a given L-shell is observed beyond L approximately equal to 6.
