Abstract:

Open-ended Terms Adiabatic invariants. As an aid to interpretation of satellite and rocket observations of the Van Allen radiation belts, a series of tables and graphs of geomagnetic field quantities is given. This first volume contains tables of the first two adiabatic invariants, the scalar field strength B and the action integral I equals the integral of Vdl. The high order fit n equals 25, m equals 18 was necessary to properly handle the Capetown Anomaly and eliminate systematic deviations of up to 7. Using surface data, high order multipole expansion in spherical harmonics is produced. The data are Epoch 1955.0. Author
