Abstract : Results of an exploratory survey of the absolute intensities, energy spectra, and angular distributions of energetic electrons and protons as a function of position along the trajectory of the Pioneer 10 spacecraft through the magnetosphere of Jupiter are given. Also discussed are the non-rigid rotation of the magnetodisc and Jovian synchrotron radiation at 10.4 cm as deduced from observed electron fluxes.
