Evidence for a Dominant Component of Solar-Energetic-Particle (SEP) Helium and Neon in a Suite of Interplanetary Dust Particles
Most of the 12 IDPs analyzed in this study are surprisingly rich in SEP gases, unaccompanied by a significant component due to solar-wind irradiation. Estimates of the SEP/SW fluence ratio from these data are 10-3 to 10-4.
