Abstract: Abstract. We report on the POLAR/CEPPAD discovery of a trapped, 60ø<0<120 ø pitch angle electron population in the outer cusp (7-9+ P•e), whose energetic electron component extends from below 30 keV to ~2 MeV. Because the time variability in the outer cusp precludes mapping with POLAR, we have carried out test particle simulations using the Tsyganenko 1996 model (T96) to demonstrate the trapping of these energy electrons in the outer cusp region and the resonant frequencies of its trapped motion. We discuss t…
