Abstract : An intensive study was made of data from three 213 G.M. tubes and one 302 G.M. tube which were carried on the State University of Iowa-Office of Naval Research satellite Injun III. Median latitude profiles of the electron population of the low altitude region of the outer zone for energies E sub e > or = 40 keV, E sub e > or = 230 keV, and E sub e > or = 1.6 MeV was derived. The dependence of intensity on scalar B was investigated.
