Highly anisotropic distribution of energetic electrons and triggered VLF emissions.
Geophysical Research Letters, 28, (13), .
The work considers the highly anisotropic electron distribution functions observed by Bell and co-workers at Stanford in the magnetosphere. IOt is maintained that Bells' observations provide evidence for the existence of step like deformations in electron distribution function, and that his observations may be due to such steps. The origin of such steps at the top of hiss band emissions is explained, and the implications for triggering of emissions and chorus is explained.
