Abstract

The Low Energy Charged Particle (LECP) instruments on Voyagers 1 (V1) and 2 (V2) measure the differential in energy fluxes and anisotropies of low energy ions≥30 keV and electrons≥20 keV differential in energy ion composition≥200 keV/nuc, and the integral rates of cosmic ray protons>70 MeV (Krimigiset al., 1977). We discuss shock-accelerated ions and latitude-associated differences between V1 and V2 during 1991 to April 1994.
