Voyager 1 Observations of the Anisotropies of Enhanced MeV Ion Fluxes at 85 AU
We report on the diffusive flow anisotropies observed in low-energy protons during intensity increases at Voyager 1 in 2001 and 2002. We propose that the unusual increased intensities after mid-2002 are due to particles accelerated by the solar wind termination shock or by the turbulent interface between the high-speed and low-speed solar wind flows.
