MEASURING LOW ENERGY PROTONS ON THE KOSMOS-41 SATELLITE,
FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY DIV WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Pagination or Media Count:
Protons with energy 0.4-7 mev and electrons of outer radiation belt were measured. It is concluded that a The outer proton belt represents a relatively stable formation and the time variation involves only the outer part of the belt, beginning with L or 4.5. b The presence of an identical altitude process and the nature of variations of low energy rotons and rigid electrons of the outer radiation belt at L or 5 indicates a generalization for both types of radiation entrapment and acceleration mechanism. c Taking into consideration the dependence of these variations upon the geomagnetic arrangement, it can be assumed, that this mechanism appears to be an anomalous diffusion of particles in the magnetosphere of the earth on account of relatively weak nonstationary perturbation of the geomagnetic field, which is observed quite frequently.
