Observations of energetic electrons E 200 keV in the Earth's magnetotail Plasma sheet and Fireball observations


With the California Institute of Technology electron/isotope spectrometer (EIS) aboard the earthorbiting spacecraft Imp 8, intense energetic electron events (E >• 200 keV) have been observed at • 30 R• in the magnetotail on 13 of 28 magnetotail passes. In one class of events, peak absolute intensitiesj(E >• 200 keV) = 10a-10 • el (cm ø' s sr) -• are… (More)
