Abstract

Abstract Observations with the directional spectrometer DFH aboard ISEE3 have been used to obtain results on the scattering time scales of energetic protons. Depending on the duration of the scattering process the particle distribution will be subjected to either phase scattering or full scattering. Our analysis of some representative events shows that full scattering is applicable to shock-associated events.
