A series of particle flux and dose rate calculations have been carried out based upon the assumption that the decimetric rf noise emanating from the vicinity of Jupiter is synchrotron radiation from electrons trapped in a dipole magnetic field. Based upon plasma stability considerations and observations in the Earth's Van Alien belts, a relationship between the surface equatorial magnetic field strength (Ho), the spatial electron density (N) and the effective inner radius (a) of the belts was… Expand
