    50 The RBSP-EMFISIS investigation will focus on the important role played by magnetic fields and plasma waves in the processes of radiation belt particle acceleration and loss. EMFISIS offers the opportunity to understand the origin of important magnetospheric plasma waves as well as the evolution of the magnetic field that defines the basic coordinate system controlling the structure of the radiation belts and the storm-time ring current.

    52 RBSP-EMFISIS Science Investigation Objectives:
    5349
    5450 *  Differentiate among competing processes affecting the acceleration and transport of radiation particles
     
    5753 *  Understand the effects of the ring current and other storm phenomena on radiation electrons and ions
    5854 *  Understand how and why the ring current and associated phenomena vary during storms
