Abstract:

A computer program has been constructed which calculates a model for geomagnetically trapped particle shells and the associated kinematic parameters. Included is the calculation of longitude-dependent drift velocities and bounce paths. This document explains the methods used in constructing the program as well as the input and output of the code.
