Description
The 3-D Plasma and Energetic Particle Analyzer investigation on WIND will
measure ions and electrons in the interplanetary medium with energies including
that of the solar wind and the energetic particle range. It will study the
particles upstream of the bow shock in the foreshock region and the transient
particles emitted by the Sun during solar particle events following solar
flares. This experiment will cover the gap between the energy ranges covered by
SWE and EPACT.
The 3-D PLASMA instrument consists of two sensor packages mounted on small
