Results of the Low Energy Charged Particle (LECP) experiments on board the Voyager spacecraft, designed to measure the fluxes and compositions of ions of energies 28 keV or greater and electrons of energies 15 keV or greater, during Jupiter encounter are presented. Observations of intense particle bursts coming from Jupiter several weeks before Jovian magnetosphere entry, magnetopause crossings, a hot corotating outer magnetospheric plasma, decreases in particle fluxes at the orbits of the… CONTINUE READING
