Abstract: Abstract. Using instrumentation on board the SAMPEX satellite at ~600 km we present new measurements of the composition of a population of >0.49 MeV/nucleon ions that are trapped near the geomagnetic equator. These ions gain access to the SAMPEX orbit as neutral particles via charge exchange collisions that continually occur within the higher altitude radiation belt and contribute to the decay of storm-time enhanced ring current. At low altitudes a second charge exchange collision produces a trapped ion belt …
