Abstract:

A new VLF phenomenon named a proton whistler has been identified in the VLF data from Alouette 1 and Injun 3 satellites. Two independent analyses on 12 of the proton whistler Injun 3 data were conducted a semi-monthly sample of data for Injun 3s ten month lifetime to determine the gross features of proton whistlers and a local nighttime and local daytime study of proton whistlers. Six assertions are made from these experimental observations. Author
