Abstract:

This report presents simple models suitable for use in systems analysis codes of those two of the several possible energy loss mechanisms from high altitude nuclear bursts referred to as the LOSS CONE and the ION LEAK. The LOSS CONE represents the escape of debris into the narrow cone of angles parallel to the magnetic field in which the Larmor coupling theory is either inapplicable or partially fails. The ION LEAK represents the loss of energy due to ions that at any stage receive a velocity component parallel to the field that is sufficient to allow them to escape along that direction. Author
