A Space Radiation Test Model Study( Book )

2 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tools for dynamic modeling of the energetic populations in the outer radiation belts are being developed to better understand the extreme variations of particle flux in response to magnetospheric and solar activity. The study utilizes the SCATHA SC3 high-energy electron data for energies from 200 keV to 2 MeV, with fine pitch-angle measurements over the L-shell range of 5.3 to 7 for quiet and moderate geomagnetic periods in April 1979 and June 1980. A solution of the simultaneous bimodal (radial and pitch-angle) diffusion equation for the radiation belts has been developed with special regard for the requirements of satellite radiation belt data analysis. The solution has been used to test the bimodal theory of outer-electron-belt diffusion by confronting it with satellite data. The data representation requires and provides diffusion parameters that are in agreement with all previous experimental and theoretical determinations of such diffusion coefficients. Such a representation satisfies the basic requirements towards the dynamic modeling of the outer electron radiation belt for L <7 at quiet and moderate geomagnetic conditions. The presentation has also been shown to be unique when projected off of the satellite trajectory in (L, t)-space. For L about 7 the representation has difficulties with butterfly distributions that may signify energetic electron encounters with the magnetopause. (JHD)

Investigation of Phenomena Affecting Auroral Ionosphere( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rocket data obtained during a magnetic substorm on 16 August 1970 indicates the auroral ionosphere was unstable to the high-frequency, Hall current, two stream instability. This mechanism has been proposed to explain field-aligned ionospheric irregularities. Such irregularities were present during the rocket experiment. According to the theory, certain critical values of electron number density, current density, and relative electron-ion drift velocity must be exceeded for the instability to occur. An analysis is described in which calculated values of these quantities are derived from the rocket measurements of the dc electric field and the precipitating electrons. The results are found to exceed the respective critical values and enforce the conclusion that the field-aligned irregularities were produced by this instability. (Modified author abstract)
Radiation Belt Dynamic and Quasi-Static Modeling Based on CRRES Data( )

2 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes achievements made in the first year of the subject contract. New results on modeling the outer magnetosphere have been derived in order to provide an interpretation of CRRES radiation belt data. New features of the outer radiation belt dynamic response to geomagnetic storms are characterized using CRRES data. Detailed analysis of a benchmark event is presented

Ionospheric Effects Resulting from Precipitating Electrons at Mid and High Latitudes( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The distributions of electrons resulting from pitch-angle diffusion due to both wave-particle interactions at high altitudes and binary collisions in the atmosphere have been determined. The results seem to be in agreement with available data, however wave fields which may be too high are required to fit the data. Some of the computational routines and cross sections used in the low-energy (1 eV to 500 eV) portion of the AURORA code have been improved. Processes occurring in the disturbed ionosphere other than collision and magnetic mirroring are inferred by comparing measurements of pitch-angle and energy distributions of electrons in the auroral zones with distributions computed with the AURORA code.

Assessment of Magnetospheric Processes of Importance in HANE( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Conditions in the unstable field-aligned current sheet above the auroral oval have been obtained from analyses of the electron and ion measurements on the S3-3 satellite. The measurements were obtained while the satellite was in and near the nominal region of the current sheet, remaining within a few degrees in invariant latitude, over a magnetic local-time interval of about 6 hours. Potential differences along the magnetic field, above and below the satellite, were inferred from the energy and pitch-angle distributions of the electrons. These potential differences, which exceeded 10 kV at times, were generally higher during the local evening than during the local afternoon, and were quite variable along the satellite trajectory, indicating latitudinal fluctuations of the current sheet with periods of 2-7 minutes. Upward flowing H+ and O+ ions were observed whenever the potential differences exceeded about .5 kV, which corresponds to the lowest energy threshold of the detectors. However, the pitch-angle distributions of the ions imply that the ions were accelerated not only along the magnetic field by the potential difference, but also perpendicularly to the field. The transverse acceleration of the ions most probably occurred through interactions with electrostatic ion cyclotron (EIC) waves, which are an expected product of the current-driven instability, and which have been observed in the current-sheet region

Radiation belt dynamic and quasi-static modeling based on CRRES data : outer belt short-term response database by Y. T Chiu( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

New features of the outer radiation belt dynamic response to geomagnetic storms are characterized using CRRES data. The response is found to have an intermediate (10-20 days) time scale and an intense short time scale (1- 2 days). The intermediate time scale changes are characterized as invariant- violating diffusion, as has been developed by us for SCATHA data. The short time scale decreases of flux are characterized as adiabatic (reversible) dynamics, conserving the first variant under trapping volume change
