Boom and bust for radiation belt high-energy electron populations

Launched on 30 August 2012, the twin Van Allen probes constitute the first dedicated mission in decades to study the Earth\textquoterights radiation belts. The sensor-laden spacecraft follow a nearly equatorial orbit, which gives them a complete view of the full range of radiation belt processes. In a new study, Baker et al. lay out some of the surprising results unveiled by the crafts\textquoteright first year in orbit.

Dynamics of the Earth\textquoterights Radiation Belts and Inner Magnetosphere

Trapped by Earth\textquoterights magnetic field far above the planet\textquoterights surface, the energetic particles that fill the radiation belts are a sign of the Sun\textquoterights influence and a threat to our technological future. In the AGU monograph Dynamics of the Earth\textquoterights Radiation Belts and Inner Magnetosphere, editors Danny Summers, Ian R. Mann, Daniel N. Baker, and Michael Schulz explore the inner workings of the magnetosphere. The book reviews current knowledge of the magnetosphere and recent rese ...
