X-ray observations of energetic electron precipitation from a long duration balloon (MAXIS) over Antarctica, January 2000
Entry ID: MAXIS_2000

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Data set contains X-ray observations from the MAXIS (MeV Auroral X-ray
Imaging and Spectroscopy) long duration balloon experiment.

MAXIS was launched January 12 2000 and consists of a Germanium
detector, two X-ray imagers and a BGO scintillator. The balloon
circumnavigated the Antarctic continent in 18 days covering magnetic
latitudes between 58-90 degrees south.

The objective of the experiment was to search for MeV X-ray bursts
caused by the precipitation of MeV electrons from the Earth's
radiation belts. MAXIS is also sensitive to X-ray aurora.
