Abstract:

From a much larger body of data on solar protons Ep 0.3 MeV obtained by Explorer 35 since July 1967, the following ten events were selected for the detailed study of intensity vs time and of angular distributions of intensity in interplanetary space near the earth November 18, 1968 August 9, 1967 May 13, 1969 January 24, 1969 March 21, 1969 June 25, 1970 January 31, 1970 July 1, 1970 November 27, 1967 and July 6, 1970. The bases of selection were that the events be of adequate intensity for statistically satisfactory study and that they be simple--that is, reasonably attributable to a single solar flare so that their time histories were not complicated by overlapping emissions of particles. The principal findings for these events are discussed in the report. Author
