Abstract

Previous work using IMP-8 data has shown the existence of an energetic electron layer adjacent to the magnetopause along the distant magnetotail (-15 ≥ X_(SM) ≥ -40 R_E). Electrons (E ≥ 200 keV) show substantial net tailward streaming in this layer and constitute an estimated down-stream energy flow of 10^(14) -10^(16) ergs/sec.
