Abstract:

The solar particle events of November 18, 1968, February 25, 1969, and March 30, 1969 have been studied using data from the University of Iowa detector system aboard the lunar orbiting satellite Explorer 35. Protons, alpha particles, and Z or 3 nuclei are registered in the solid state detector of the system. An omnidirectional GM tube records protons of energy or MeV. Included in the study are interplanetary propagation, particle anisotrophy, and the intensity ratios of protons to alpha particles and of alpha particles to C,N,O nuclei above a common specific energy of 0.5 MeVnucleon.
