Origins of magnetospheric physics by James A Van Allen( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early in 1958, instruments on the space satellites Explorer I and Explorer III revealed the presence of radiation belts, enormous populations of energetic particles trapped in the magnetic field of the earth. Originally published in 1983 but long out of print until now, Origins of Magnetospheric Physics tells the story of this dramatic and hugely transformative period in scientific and Cold War history. Writing in an accessible style and drawing on personal journals, correspondence, published papers, and the recollections of colleagues, James Van Allen documents a trail-blazing era in space hi
924 elementary problems and answers in solar system astronomy by James A Van Allen( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This challenging collection of problems is organized into seven carefully crafted, thoughtful chapters on the Sun and the nature of the solar system; the motion of the planets; the Sun, Earth, and Moon; the sky as observed from the rotating, revolving Earth; other planets, their satellites, their rings; asteroids, comets, and meteoroids; and the radiations and telescopes. From question 1, "List characteristics of the solar system that are major clues in devising a hypothesis of its origin and evolution," through question 924, "Give a brief list of the contributions of radio and

Entry of low-energy solar protons into the earth's magnetotail by Nicolaos A Saflekos( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The access of low-energy solar protons (E sub p> 0.3 MeV) from the interplanetary medium into the earth's magnetotail was studied using observations obtained by Explorers 33, 34, and 35 over a 4.5 year period. Emphasis is on events whose intensity-time profiles exhibit sharply defined discontinuities observed by at least one of the three spacecraft in the interplanetary medium and another within the magnetotail

Spatial distribution and time decay of the intensities of geomagnetically trapped electrons from the high altitude nuclear burst of july 1962 by James A Van Allen( Book )

3 editions published between 1963 and 1965 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A one-year observational study of the artificial radiation belt produced by the nuclear burst Starfish on 9 July 1962 is reported. It is estimated that 1.3 x 10 to the 25th power electrons from radioactive fission products, or some 2.6% of the total yield, were presented in geomagnetically trapped orbits at 10 hours after the burst. These electrons disappeared in the manner expected from the atmospheric loss theory of Walt for values of the magnetic shell parameter L <1.25 earth radii. At increasing values of L the rate of disappearance was progressively more rapid than expected by this theory. The maximum observed value of the apparent mean lifetime of approx. 2 MeV electrons in the time range 4000 <delta t <10,000 hours was 2 years at L = 1.5. About 15% of the initially injected electrons (or 0.4 of 1% of the total) survived the first 5-1/2 months, about 10% the first year. Detailed spatial distribution and temporal data are given in a series of plots. (Author)
The correlation of x-ray radiation (2-12 Å) with microwave radiation (10.7 cm) from the non-flaring sun by Jean Gibson( Book )

3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present paper utilizes (a) an extended, homogeneous body of solar x-ray observations (2 - 12 A) by University of Iowa equipment on the earth-orbiting satellite Explorer 33 and the moor-orbiting satellite Explorer 35 for 734 days during the period 1 July 1966 to 25 December 1968 and (b) the 10.7 cm (2800 MHz) daily solar radio flux values of the Algonquin Radio Observatory. The specific purposes of the work are to establish the relationship between daily average values of the x-ray and radio fluxes from the whole disc of the non-flaring sun and to consider the significance of the relationship
Simultaneous observations of solar protons inside and outside the magnetosphere by S. M Krimigis( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simultaneous observations of low energy (Approx. 0.5 MeV) protons emitted in the solar flare of 7 July 1966 were made with University of Iowa detectors on board the earth satellites Explorer 33 and Injun IV, located outside and inside the earth's magnetosphere, respectively. It was found that such protons have full and essentially immediate access from interplanetary space to the polar caps of the earth. (Author)
Variability of intensity ratios of H to He and He to C, N, O in energetic solar particle events by James A Van Allen( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explorer 35 data on energetic solar particle events show that intensity ratios of H to He (p/alpha) and of He to Z> or = 3 ions (alpha/M) in the sub-MeV specific energy range (epsilon = or> 0.5 MeV/nucleon) vary from event to event and more especially during the time history of individual events. Ranges of observed values are 10 <p/alpha <90 and 3 <alpha/M <27. The interpretation emphasizes two interplanetary propagation effects as principally responsible for the observed variability of the intensity ratios of the various ionic species: (a) differential diffusion and (b) changes in intensity and spectra caused by reflection of diffusing particles by propagating magnetic discontinuities.
