Abstract : Balloon-borne electric field and x-ray detectors have been flown from Fort Churchill and from near the foot of the magnetic field line on which the ATS-5 satellite is located, in order to obtain and compare satellite and balloon measurements of trapped and precipitating particles with balloon measurements of the ionospheric electric field.
