Abstract:

The phenomenology and aeronomic effects of charged particle precipitation at middle and low latitudes are reviewed. This paper includes discussions of the behavior of quasi-trapped electrons observed at middle and low latitudes, the precipitation of protons from the ring current into the low latitude atmosphere, and a summary of the effects of the South Atlantic magnetic anomaly on charged particles trapped at low altitudes. A brief summary and review of controversial observations of charged particle fluxes at low altitudes is also included. Author
