Auroral Particle Precipitation Patterns

  • Willi Riedler
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 32)


Data from a low energy auroral electron and proton experiment are presented which were obtained from October 1968 to June 1970 from the polar-orbit satellite ESRO I A (Aurorae). The results include (a) discontinuities in the precipitation patterns around 5 and 19 hr MLT, (b) ‘valleys’ in the average flux distributions in the noon/dusk sector, (c) latitudinal cross over of 5.8 keV electron and proton precipitation, and (d) Kp-dependent 5.8 keV proton population at low latitudes, which is presumably connected with the generation of SAR arcs.
