Abstract:

A description of the energetic 140 kev to 3.9 Mev electron environment observed at the synchronous altitude during the 1974-1977 time interval is presented. These results were obtained by an experimental carried on the geostationary ATS-6 spacecraft. Observations were made at several longitudes. Electron fluxes exhibit a complex temporal behavior ranging in time scale from a diurnal variation to a semi-annual variation. Average fluxes are computed and compared with earlier studies and models. Author
