Abstract

As Voyager 1 and 2 approach the solar wind termination shock, the hydrogen energy spectrum exhibits a rapidly increasing flux of anomalous cosmic-ray hydrogen, consistent with that observed for other anomalous cosmic-ray species. These results are consistent with the evidence for anomalous cosmic-ray hydrogen reported from Voyager observations during the period of minimum solar modulation in 1987.
