Energetic Heavy Ion Composition (EHIC)

NSSDCA ID: 1993-050A-07

Mission Name: NOAA 13


The Energetic Heavy Ion Composition (EHIC) experiment flown on NOAA-I measured the chemical and isotopic composition of energetic particles between hydrogen and nickel over the energy range of 0.5 to 200 MeV/nucleon. The experiment measured energetic particles produced by solar flares in the Earth's polar regions and measured trapped energetic particles in the magnetosphere.
