Variable: Heavy ion flux energy and mass spectrum

Definition
Full name Heavy ion flux energy and mass spectrum
Definition Flux density energy and mass spectrum of heavy ions ranging from Helium to Iron.
Measuring Units ions·(cm2 s MeV/nuc)-1 Uncertainty Units %
Horizontal Res Units degrees Vertical Res Units
Stability Units % (Stability /decade)

 

Comment: A measure of the radiation environment that could present a hazard to satellites and humans in space. The horizontal resolution is counted in degrees of arc along an Earth orbit, i.e. 90 degrees correspond to 4 measurement points.
