Jovian electrons serve as an important test-particle distribution in the inner heliosphere and have been used extensively in the past to study the (diffusive) transport of cosmic rays in the inner heliosphere. With new limits on the Jovian source function (i.e. the particle intensity just outside the Jovian magnetosphere), and a new set of in-situ observations at 1 AU for both cases of good and poor magnetic connection between the source and observer, we revisit some of these earlier…

Revisiting the Revisited Palmer Consensus: New Insights from Jovian Electron Transport
Novel insights into the behavior of the diffusion coefficients of charged particles in the inner heliosphere are of great importance to any study of the transport of these particles and are
Theory of Cosmic Ray Transport in the Heliosphere
Modelling the transport of cosmic rays (CRs) in the heliosphere represents a global challenge in the field of heliophysics, in that such a study, if it were to be performed from first principles,


Transport coefficients of low‐energy cosmic rays in interplanetary space
The propagation of energetic particles along and across the interplanetary magnetic field is governed by the large-scale field geometry and by scattering in small-scale turbulent fields. Values of

The modulation of 4- to 16-MeV electrons in the outer heliosphere: Implications of different local interstellar spectra
[1] The modulation of low-energy galactic and Jovian electrons is studied using a fully three-dimensional, steady state modulation model and a two-dimensional termination shock model, both based on
The global modulation of Galactic and Jovian electrons in the heliosphere
A full three-dimensional, numerical model is used to study the modulation of Jovian and Galactic electrons from 1 MeV to 50 GeV, and from the Earth into the heliosheath. For this purpose the very
Jovian electrons in the inner heliosphere: proposing a new source spectrum based on 30 years of measurements
Context. Since the Pioneer 10 flyby of Jupiter it has become well known that electrons of Jovian origin dominate the lower MeV range of charged energetic particles in the inner heliosphere. Aims.
Simple Analytical Forms of the Perpendicular Diffusion Coefficient for Two-component Turbulence. III. Damping Model of Dynamical Turbulence
In several astrophysical applications one needs analytical forms of cosmic-ray diffusion parameters. Some examples are studies of diffusive shock acceleration and solar modulation. In the current

In this study, a novel ab initio cosmicray (CR) modulation code that solves a set of stochastic transport equations equivalent to the Parker transport equation, and that uses output from a
Multi-spacecraft Observations and Transport Modeling of Energetic Electrons for a Series of Solar Particle Events in August 2010
During August 2010 a series of solar particle events, origin ating from the adjacent active regions 11093 and 11099, was observed by the two STEREO as well as by ne ar-Earth spacecraft. For the
We investigate the effects on the transport of a few MeV (~7 MeV) Jovian and Galactic electrons for different solar wind speed scenarios applicable to different heliospheric conditions. A
