Abstract:

Data on energetic electron fluxes at the synchronous orbit, covering the 1967-1977 time interval, obtained by experiments flown on the ATS-1, ATS-5 and ATS-6 spacecraft have been combined. The long-term averages of the fluxes of relativistic electrons at the synchronous orbit are relatively constant over this time interval, and flux variations correlate positively with averages of the solar wind velocity.
