Observations of the nighttime electron volt range electron fluxes in the equatorial regionThe importance of some of the features observed among the nighttime equatorial data of Explorer 31 is discussed with respect to the nighttime thermal structure of the topside ionosphere. The very short-lived photoelectrons being absent, the nighttime measurements represent the background flux due to magnetospheric particles.
