Abstract

Data obtained from terrestrial means are considered on upper atmosphere corpuscles which are responsible for geomagnetic disturbances and aurorae. These corpuscles, as a rule, do not have energies above 10 keV and they have nothing in common with cosmic rays. Data on geoactive corpuscles are compared with data on energetic electrons obtained from Sputnik III. Coincidence of various data is stated. Nonmonochromaticity of corpuscles’ velocities indicate that they are not primary solar corpuscles and, therefore, should be generated in the vicinity of the Earth. The problem of helium emission λ10 830 Å in aurorae is considered. It is shown that fur its excitation powerful fluxes of electrons with energies to 10 keV are necessary.
