The Charged Particle Detector (CPD) on board the Oersted satellite (649 km perigee, 865 km apogee and 96.48 inclination) currently measures energetic protons and electrons. The measured peak fluxes of E >1 MeV electrons are found to confirm the predictions of AE8-MAX, though they occur at a geographical position relatively shifted in the SAA. The fluxes of protons are one order of magnitude higher than the predictions of AP8-MAX in the energy range 20–500 MeV. This huge discrepancy between AP8… CONTINUE READING
