SM023:
Radiation belt dynamics in the Earth’s inner zone and slot region





Session ID#: 27389

Session Description:
The inner radiation zone and slot region have recently become a focus of interest because they reside either completely within the plasmasphere or extend into the inner edge of the plasma sheet depending on geomagnetic activity. The energy dependence and dynamics there are different than found in the outer radiation belt. These regions have been little studied until recently. The physical processes that occur in these regions involve strong variations in the source, transport, and loss rates for both electrons and ions. This session solicits contributions that incorporate studies of effects like wave-particle interactions, radial transport, solar particle entrapment, etc. We encourage results utilizing measurements from older and recent missions, such as Van Allen Probes, as well as modeling efforts that shed new light on processes unique to these regions. For the purposes of the session we define these regions to be within L < 4.
