Since the discovery of large (factor of greater than 1000) enhancements of singly ionized helium in corotating interaction regions (CIRs), it has become clear that low charge state ions from interstellar neutrals or other heliospheric sources can be preferentially injected into the energetic particle population. The large enhancements in suprathermal and energetic He` suggest that low charge state ions may likewise a†ect the composition of CIR-related heavy ions such as C or Ne. Therefore, a… CONTINUE READING
