The elliptic orbit satellite Explorer 12 made possible the routine survey of the heart of the outer radiation zone as well as the region of transition between the magnetosphere and interplanetary space on the sunward side of the earth by means of a variety of particle and magnetic field detectors. The data received from the SUI detectors during the entire 112-day lifetime have been comprehensively analyzed. Salient features observed include: confirmation of the enhancement of soft electron… Expand
