Summary of Particle Populations in the Magnetosphere

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 17)

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to provide a succinct description of the charged particle distributions within the magnetosphere which has been made possible by the many satellite observations over the past decade. The main emphasis will be on the time averaged behavior of these particle populations rather than the detailed dynamical charges which occur. Some of the important physical processes which produce these changes are discussed elsewhere in this volume. Furthermore, many of the papers presented later will give new data, new interpretations, and generally new understanding of this complex environment. Consequently this work does not attempt to present a complete review of the previous observational measurements but rather to provide an average baseline from which the transient events depart.
