Description

The observation of energetic (0.7-12 keV) oxygen ions in the magnetosphere have indicated that the ionosphere can be an important source of energetic ions, at least at times of magnetic storms. The characteristics of the precipitating energetic oxygen ions during magnetic storms will be presented and discussed. Also, energetic (0.7-12 keV) H e + ions have recently been observed, but these ions are found much less frequently and have significantly lower fluxes than the energetic oxygen ions. These energetic ion results will be reviewed and discussed relative to the ionospheric composition at high latitudes and to recently proposed models for the energization of the ions.
