Abstract : This compilation of abstracts is based on Soviet open sources published 1965-1966. It is the third in a series of reports reviewing Soviet developments in aerospace instrumentation. Information not directly related to the assigned subject has been included because of its broad implications for study in this field. The 34 abstracts are arranged alphabetically by author within each of the following categories: 1. Magnetometer studies (4 entries); 2. Cosmic and corpuscular radiation detection (23 entries); 3. Electromagnetic radiation (6 entries); 4. Pressure sensors (1 entry). Other information included: world magnetic survey program experiments, ferroprobe gradiometer, Earth's magnetic field measurement, upper atmosphere soft electron fluxes, cosmic radio emission intensity, particle studies, outer ionsphere composition, satellite radiometric instrumentation, Cosmos and Electron satellite investigations, geometric distribution and composition of particles in the Earth's radiation belts, charged particle recording and investigation. The bibliography at the end of the report comprises 34 entries. (Author)
