Lack of Effect of Io on Jovian 3.75-cm Emission


A RECENT investigation by Bigg1 has shown that the recording of decameter wave-length radiation from Jupiter depends not only on the Jovian longitude which faces the Earth but also on the relative position of the satellite Io in its orbit. Since the decameter bursts are probably associated with the magnetic field of the planet, I decided to see if Io had any effect on the synchrotron emission generated within the radiation belts in Jupiter's magnetosphere.
