Geos I : Identification of natural magnetospheric emissions

Abstract

Natural noise bands, a persistent feature of the Earth's magnetosphere, have been identified for the first time, using novel techniques on the recently launched Geos I satellite. It is argued that these waves, in the electron cyclotron harmonic mode, are radiated incoherently by suprathermal electrons.
