Abstract:

This report describes in detail the theory of electron energy deposition used in the ARCTIC auroral code. New results describing the effects of radial electron diffusion both with and without a magnetic field are presented. Detailed comparisons are made between the ARCTIC theory, data, and the results of a Monte Carlo calculation performed to check the accuracy of the theory. Some comparisons between the ARCTIC approach to the electron energy deposition problem and several other deposition methods are discussed.
