A high-altitude nuclear explosion creates an artificial radiation belt. We can learn about the physics of an explosion by looking at the hard-to-detect, natural, near-light-speed electrons in the Van Allen Belts. If an artificial radiation belt were ever detected, these new observations would help us understand it better. Dayside Magnetosphere Interactions outlines the physics and processes of dayside magnetospheric phenomena, the role of solar wind in generating ultra-low frequency waves, and solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling. Volume highlights include: Phenomena across different temporal and spatial scales.

For example, the radiation belts can have impacts on the operations of satellites, and particles and currents from the magnetosphere can heat the upper atmosphere and result in satellite drag that can affect the orbits of low-altitude Earth orbiting satellites.   Trapped within the magnetosphere are charged particles from the Sun that form intense radiation belts around the planet. These belts are similar to the Earth’s Van Allen belts, but are many.

This third belt and the outer belt disappeared several weeks after the third belt appeared; the outer belt subsequently re-formed. The region of the radiation belts has been given the name of magnetosphere to distinguish it from the atmosphere. The high-energy particles of which the belts are composed circulate along the earth's magnetic lines. Current State of Knowledge of Radiation Belts II Presiding: Ian R.

Ultralow frequency (ULF) waves are ubiquitous in the magnetosphere and can have a large direct and indirect impact on the radiation belts. Although their relative contribution to radiation belt dynamics are still enthusiastically debated today within the scientific community, the fact that they impact radiation belt dynamics cannot be denied.

The entire outer magnetosphere appears to change drastically on time scales of a few days to a radiation belt and magnetosphere book. In addition to its known modulation of the Jovian decametric radio bursts, Io was found to absorb some radiation belt particles and to accelerate others, and most importantly, to be a source of neutral atoms, and by inference, a heavy ion plasma.

The Radiation Belt and Magnetosphere is a book written by Wilmot Hess in The intention of the book is to amalgamate and sift through some articles, written sinceon this topic.

See also. Magnetosphere; Van Allen radiation belt; Notes. The region where high-energy electrons and ions are trapped in the magnetosphere is called the ‘radiation belt’ (Van Allen belt). The radiation belt consists of an inner belt that is distributed around an altitude of 3, km and an outer belt that is distributed around an altitude of 20, km in the equatorial plane, as shown in Figure 6.

Radiation belts are regions of enhanced populations of energetic electrons and protons surrounding the Earth in space. These belts are highly dynamic, increasing and decreasing on time scales of minutes to years. The high levels of radiation caused by the energetic electrons and protons makes this a very harsh region for satellites.

This radiation is well understood and was used since the beginning of the s to study the structure of the planet's magnetic field and radiation belts. The particles in the radiation belts originate in the outer magnetosphere and are adiabatically accelerated, when they are transported to the inner magnetosphere.

A magnetosphere has many parts, such as the bow shock, magnetosheath, magnetotail, plasmasheet, lobes, plasmasphere, radiation belts and many electric is composed of charged particles and magnetic flux.

These particles are responsible for many wonderful natural phenomena such as the aurora and natural radio emissions such as lion roars and whistler waves. Ionosphere and magnetosphere, regions of Earth’s atmosphere in which the number of electrically charged particles— ions and electrons—are large enough to affect the propagation of radio charged particles are created by the action of extraterrestrial radiation (mainly from the Sun) on neutral atoms and molecules of ionosphere begins at a height of about 50 km (30 miles.

Highlights include the following: a review of the current state of the art of radiation belt science; a complete and up-to-date account of the wave-particle interactions that control the dynamical acceleration and loss processes of particles in the Earth\'s radiation belts and inner magnetosphere; a discussion emphasizing the importance of the.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume Dynamics of the Earth's Radiation Belts and Inner Magnetosphere draws together current knowledge of the radiation belts prior to the launch of Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RPSP) and other imminent space missions, making this volume timely and unique.

The volume will serve as a useful. Van Allen radiation belt. A Van Allen radiation belt is a zone of energetic charged particles, most of which originate from the solar wind, that are captured by and held around a planet by that planet’s magnetic field.

There are two such concentric tire-shaped regions. The inner belt is 1–2 Earth radii out while the outer belt is at 4–7.Ionosphere and magnetosphere - Ionosphere and magnetosphere - Magnetosphere: The overall structure of the outer ionosphere—the magnetosphere—is strongly influenced by the configuration of Earth’s magnetic field.

Close to the planet’s surface, the magnetic field has a structure similar to that of an ideal dipole. Field lines are oriented more or less vertically at high latitudes, sweep.
