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
A Space Radiation Test Model Study( Book )

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

Dynamic models 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, covering energies from 47 keV to 5 MeV with fine pitch angle measurements (3 deg field of view) over the L-shell range of 5.3 to 8.7. Butter-fly distributions in the dusk sector signify particle losses due to L shell splitting of the particle drift orbits and the subsequent scattering of the particles from the orbits by the magnetopause. To model the temporal variations and diffusion procsses of the particle populations, the data have been organized into phase space distributions, binned according to altitude (L shell), energy, pitch angle, and time. These distributions can then be mapped to the equator and plotted for fixed first and second adiabatic invariants of the inherent particle motion. A new and efficient method for calculating the third adiabatic invariant using a line integral of the relevant magnetic potential at the particle mirror points has been developed and is undergoing testing. This method will provide a useful means of displaying the radial diffusion signatures of the outer radiation belts during the more active periods when the L shell parameter is not a good concept due to severe drift-shell splitting. The first phase of fitting the energetic electron phase-space distributions with a combined radial and pitch-angle diffusion formulation is well underway. Bessel functions are being fit to the data in an eigenmode expansion method to determine the diffusion coefficients
Low Energy X-Ray Spectrometer Development( Book )

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

The technology for fabricating artificial crystals has been investigated and developed to a point where such crystals can be readily produced. Properties such as scattering efficiency and resolving power were investigated using laboratory calibration x-ray sources. Such crystals, bent and mounted in a curved-crystal spectrograph and coupled with NS or SC-7 film, provide an effective low-energy, high-resolution x-ray detection system. Lead-stearate artificial crystals appeared to have the most desirable feature for providing good resolution and efficiency for x radiation below 1,000 eV. A feasibility study for using an array of thin-film superconducting-strips in the recording plane of the spectrograph (in place of passive film) showed that this kind of configuration has promise as an active detector of low-energy x rays capable of subnanosecond time resolution.

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

SCATHA (Spacecraft Charging AT High Altitudes) Plasma Interaction Experiment: SC-3 High Energy Particle Spectrometer; SC-8 Energetic Ion Composition Experiment( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report describes the results of the SC-3 (High Energy Particle Spectrometer) and SC-8 (Energetic Ion Composition Experiment) instruments flown on the SCATHA (Spacecraft Charging at High Altitudes) satellite, launched in January 1979 into a near geosynchronous orbit. The instruments measure electrons at energies of 0.05-5.0 MeV, protons of 1-100 MeV, and mass composition of ions in the range E/q=0.1-32. keV/e. Both instruments continue to be fully operational at this time. Principal results of the High Energy Particle Spectrometer have addressed radial profiles and energy spectra of energetic particles, the role of energetic particles in the charging and discharging of spacecraft dielectrics, the behavior of trapped electrons at flux levels near the Kennel-Petchek trapping limit, and the precipitation of energetic electrons into the ionosphere. The Energetic Ion Composition Experiment has provided the first ion composition data with routine pitch angle coverage in the vicinity of geosynchronous orbit. The advances resulting from this instrument can be grouped into four categories: (1) plasma injection and transport, (2) detailed structure of near-geosynchronous plasma distributions, (3) interactions between hot plasmas and spacecraft, and (4) global understanding arising from the synthesis of individual results. Additional keywords: abstracts, literature surveys, electric charge, space charge, particle flux, electron guns, ion guns. (Author)
