We present a machine-learning-based model of relativistic electron fluxes >1.8 MeV using a neural network approach in the Earth’s outer radiation belt. The Outer RadIation belt Electron Neural net model for Relativistic electrons (ORIENT-R) uses only solar wind conditions and geomagnetic indices as input. For the first time, we show that the state of the outer radiation belt can be determined using only solar wind conditions and geomagnetic indices, without any initial and boundary conditions… Expand

A plasma density model of the inner magnetosphere is important for a variety of applications including the study of wave-particle interactions, and wave excitation and propagation. Previous empirical… Expand
Artificial neural network prediction model for geosynchronous electron fluxes: Dependence on satellite position and particle energy
Geosynchronous satellites are often exposed to energetic electrons, the flux of which varies often to a large extent. Since the electrons can cause irreparable damage to the satellites, efforts to… Expand

Multiyear Measurements of Radiation Belt Electrons: Acceleration, Transport, and Loss
This work portrays the radiation belt acceleration, transport, and loss characteristics over a wide range of geomagnetic events and highlights features seen repeatedly in the data (three‐belt structures, β€œimpenetrable” barrier properties, and radial diffusion signatures) in the context of acceleration and loss mechanisms.

Three‐dimensional electron radiation belt simulations using the BAS Radiation Belt Model with new diffusion models for chorus, plasmaspheric hiss, and lightning‐generated whistlers
The flux of relativistic electrons in the Earth's radiation belts is highly variable and can change by orders of magnitude on timescales of a few hours. Understanding the drivers for these changes is… Expand

Quantitative prediction of radiation belt electrons at geostationary orbit based on solar wind measurements
Solar wind measurements are used to predict the MeV electron radiation belt flux at the position of geostationary orbit. Using a model based on the standard radial diffusion equation, a prediction… Expand
Space Weather Effects in the Earth’s Radiation Belts
The first major scientific discovery of the Space Age was that the Earth is enshrouded in toroids, or belts, of very high-energy magnetically trapped charged particles. Early observations of the… Expand
