Abstract

THE twin-telescope particle-detector system, SLED, aboard Phobos 2 recorded flux enhancements in the range 30-350 keV in the same general location in the close environment of Mars, over eight days at ∼900 km altitude in three successive elliptical orbits. Here we present possible interpretations of these observations. Energy-related particle shadowing by the body of Mars was also detected, and the data indicate that this effect occurred in
