This model provides the integral energy and number flux and the average energy of precipitating auroral ions as a function of corrected geomagnetic latitude (CGL), magnetic local time (MLT), and magnetic activity (Kp). About 26.5 million individual 1s spectra from the SSJ/4 detectors on the DMSP F6, and F7 satellites were sampled into 30 CGL bins (50 to 90) and into 48 halfhour bins for seven levels of magnetic activity Kp = 0 to 6). The paper presents (1) plots of average spectra, (2) histograms of average integral energy/number flux and average energy as a function of CGL along the noonmidnight and dawndusk meridians, and (3) colorcoded polar spectrograms of the same quantities in a MLTCGL coordinate system.
