Abstract : Energetic electron data from the omnidirectional spectrometer on the synchronous ATS-1 satellite have been compiled for the period December 1966 to March 1968. Omnidirectional fluxes of electrons >300 keV, >450 keV, >1.05 MeV, and >1.9 MeV were analyzed in terms of the probability of observing an integral flux greater than F sub x above these thresholds.
