Abstract:

This program is directed toward an improved understanding of the sources and energization, transport and loss processes associated with the low-energy keV plasmas in the earths magnetosphere, particularly as they relate to the ionospheric perturbations and ionospheric-magnetospheric coupling. A low-energy particle experiment is planned for flight on the polar-orbiting Air Force S3-3 STP 74-2 satellite. Author
