Peculiarities of electron precipitation in morning sector of auroral zone during geomagnetic storm
- 19 Downloads
The analysis of electron (E e >30keV) and proton (E p >150keV) precipitating fluxes measured on low altitude satellite Intercosmos-17 during the geomagnetic storm December 2, 1977 is presented. Particularly, the gap in electron precipitation on morning side at L=5÷6 is analyzed and discussed in terms of strong cyclotron diffusion.
