Example of ring current-radiation belt coupling. Top panels show proton and electron pitch angle distributions observed by the Polar satellite. Bottom panels show proton pitch angle distribution obtained by simulation. (After Ebihara et al. 2008a). a 80–100 keV observed proton. b 125–173 keV observed proton. c 1698–2101 keV observed electron. d 80–100 keV simulated proton. e 125–173 keV simulated proton
