Abstract : New features of the outer radiation belt dynamic response to geomagnetic storms are characterized using CRRES data. The response is found to have an intermediate (10-20 days) time scale and an intense short time scale (1- 2 days). The intermediate time scale changes are characterized as invariant- violating diffusion, as has been developed by us for SCATHA data. The short time scale decreases of flux are characterized as adiabatic (reversible) dynamics, conserving the first variant under trapping volume change.
