Abstract

The paper presents observations of relativistic electron precipitations (REP) on the International Space Station (ISS) obtained by three Bulgarian-built instruments flown in 2001 and 2008-2010. The first data are from the Liulin-E094 instrument flown in May-August 2001 inside the US laboratory module of the ISS. Next the time profiles of the REP-generated daily fluences and the absorbed doses at the orbit of ISS during the period February 2008-August 2010 are analyzed in dependence of the daily Ap index and compared with the daily relativistic electron fluence with energies of more than 2 MeV measured by the GOES. The REP in April 2010 being the second largest in GOES history (with a >2 MeV electron fluence event) is specially studied. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
