The results of continuous monitoring of the intensity variations of relativistic electron flux (1.5–3 MeV and 3–6 MeV) in the outer radiation belt of the Earth which was done by the MKL instrument onboard the CORONAS-F satellite are presented. The main purpose of the work is analysis of the dynamics of relativistic electron flux in the outer radiation belt of the Earth in particular long increasing of their intensity 10 and more days after magnetic storms.
