Description
There are three scientific objectives to be studied by the HEP investigation on
Geotail: (1) plasma dynamics in the geomagnetic tail, (2) solar flare particle
acceleration and propagation, and (3) the origin, lifetime and propagation of
cosmic ray particles. There are five instruments that make up this
investigation: Low-energy particle Detector (LD), Burst Detector (BD),
Medium-energy Isotope detectors (MI-1 and MI-2), and High energy Isotope
detector (HI).
