Abstract : The report presents spectral, spatial, and temporal variations of outer zone electrons with energies from 10 keV to 100 keV observed with Injun 3. Strong observational support was found for the model of Taylor and Hones (1965) which adiabatically accelerates and then precipitates solar wind electrons in the auroral zone during magnetically active periods.
