Abstract
Differential spectra of electrons 20-3,000 eV in energy have been directly measured in the ionosphere. The spectrometer used an open electron multiplier as its detector, counting individual electrons. It was carreid in Black Brant II rockets launched in 1063 at Churchill, Manitoba, in the presence of so-called auroral absorption (of very-high-frequency cosmic radio noise).
