Parameter: Omnidirectional, integral (or differential) electron or proton fluxes in Earth's radiation belt

Brief Description:
This software package includes (1) an improved and updated version of the old MODEL program (MODEL87), (2) an interactive driver program (RADBELT), (3) the electron AE-8 and proton AP-8 flux maps for solar maximum and minimum, and (4) the interpolation subroutines. RADBELT and MODEL87 compute omnidirectional, integral, or differential (in energy) fluxes of electrons and protons trapped in Earth's radiation for specified energy, L-value, and B/Bo range (B/Bo is magnetic field strength normalized to the equatorial value). The fluxes are obtained by an interpolation procedure from the AE-8 and AP-8 trapped particle flux maps. The RADBELT program allows the user to specify input parameters and options on line and generates flux tables that can be stored for later use.

Availability: (1) Retrievable from CCMC's anonymous FTP site; (2) can be run via the WWW.
