Abstract:

A study of the plasma environment encountered by the P78-2 Spacecraft Charging At High Altitudes SCATHA satellite during its operation between March 1979 and June 1980 was conducted and reported in the SCATHA Environmental Atlas AFGL-TR-83-0002. Summary plots of much of the data used in the Atlas are presented in two volumes. The first volume contains magnetic field data and spacecraft frame potential data. The second volume contains low and medium energy range electron and ion data, medium energy range ion composition data and high energy electron data. The data are presented in 24-hour plots.
