Abstract:

They have initiated investigations of the South Atlantic Anomaly region, of the global distribution of low energy magnetospheric particles, and of the time dependence of the low energy particle fluxes. Further, an initial analysis of the mass and charge composition of the solar energic particles observed, over the polar regions, during the mission was completed. The remainder of this report will summarize the following topics a Data processinganalysis, b Solar Energetic Particle composition c Global surveys of low energy particle radiation, and d The South Atlantic Anomaly region.
