    When an energetic neutron collides with a proton (i.e., a hydrogen nucleus), there is a high probability that the neutron will exchange substantial momentum with the proton. Since human beings are largely composed of hydrogen-rich compounds such as proteins, fat, and especially water, neutrons passing through the human body have a substantial.

2 Data Sources and Analysis Methods. The baseline observations for this study come from the Energetic Proton, Electron and Alpha Detector (EPEAD) on board the GOES‐15 spacecraft (GOES N Series Data Book, ; Hanser, ; Rodriguez et al., ). This satellite was launched on 4 March and was subsequently declared operational on 6.

The highly energetic electron environment in the inner magnetosphere (geosynchronous orbit and inward) has received a lot of interest recently, as it becomes increasingly evident that existing stat.

electron data collected by IMP 8 over a period of nearly 4 years. These data provide strong evidence that the high energy component of upstream electrons is closely related to the magnetopause electron layer.

DATA AND ANALYSIS Data for this analysis were collected between day and day by the California Institute of Technology. Voyager 2 observations of electrostatic electron and ion harmonic waves in Neptune's magnetosphere are addressed.

The proton/electron telescope (PET) on SAMPEX (Solar, Anomalous, and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer) is designed to provide measurements of energetic electrons and light nuclei from solar. The electron spectra are based on fluxes derived from several different detectors /2/ and each point on a spectrum represents the integral flux above the corresponding energy.

The proton spectra are differential measurements from similar telescopes with different viewing directions for a single 30 minute time period. Energetic Electron Transport in the Inner Magnetosphere During Geomagnetic Storms and Substorms: Final Research Report 15 February Prepared by D.

McKENZIE and P. ANDERSON Space Science Applications Laboratory Laboratory Operations Prepared for NASA-GSFC Greenbelt, MD 1 Contract No. NAG51 Engineering and Technology Group. Energetic Particle. Energetic particles precipitating into the Earth’s atmosphere come from different sources: solar energetic protons, high-energy protons of energies up to a few hundreds of MeV from large eruptions on the surface of the sun, in solar flares and solar coronal mass ejections; From: The Dynamic Loss of Earth's Radiation Belts.

The proton intensity in the low latitude ‘rim’ of the polar region appears to track the interplanetary flux of solar protons more readily than does the polar intensity. The rim straddles the energetic electron trapping boundary, and the rim intensity is frequently greater than the polar plateau flux.

The Voyager 2 cosmic ray system (CRS) measured significant fluxes of energetic [>/=1 megaelectron volt (MeV)] trapped electrons and protons in the magnetosphere of Neptune.

The intensities are maximum near a magnetic L shell of 7, decreasing closer to the planet because of absorption by satellites and rings. The variation of the flux of energetic electrons in the magnetosphere has been proven to be strongly related to the solar wind speed.

Observations of GEO orbit show that the flux of low-energy electrons is not only modulated by the solar wind speed, but, if a time delay is added, is also positively correlated to the flux of high-energy electrons.

A review of the existing data on Neptune and a search of the NASA Planetary Data System (PDS) were completed to obtain the most current descriptions of the Neptunian high-energy particle environment.

These data were fit in terms of the O8 B-L coordinates to develop the electron and proton. Earth's magnetic field creates a 'bubble' around Earth that helps protect our planet from some of the more harmful effects of energetic particles streaming out from the sun in the solar wind.

Some of the earliest hints of this interaction go back to the s with the work of Richard Carrington, and in the early s with the work of Kristian Birkeland and Carl Stormer.

comparable to proton characteristic lengths we use multi-point magnetic field and density data (derived from spacecraft potential) from the Cluster spacecraft when they were in undisturbed intervals of slow and fast solar wind.

Using the spacecraft potential allows much higher time resolution than is typically. A study of the precipitation of protons ( 35 MeV) and electrons ( - MeV) in the northern auroral zone based on the observations of EXOS-C satellite during reveals that the global peak flux profile follows the global minimum magnetic field profile with a full-width-at-half-maximum (FWFM) of approx 7 deg for the proton zone and approx 5 deg for the electron zone.

Waterfall’s CPI Theory views solar plasma as an electron wave-field transporting protons from the Sun to Earth’s auroral oval.

When it reaches the ionosphere, the electron releases its proton cargo and is free.
