Abstract
This work is devoted to the analysis of experimental data of high-energy electron flux in the near-Earth space. The data were obtained during the ARINA and VSPLESK satellite experiments. The ARINA and VSPLESK spectrometers measured the fluxes of electrons and protons with energies of 3-30 MeV and 30-100 MeV respectively. The ARINA was carried out since 2006 till 2016 on board the Resurs-DK1 satellite. The VSPLESK was carried out since 2008 till 2013 on board the International Space Station. The goal of these experiments was to study the physics origin of high-energy charged particle variations and bursts (short term increases of fluxes). Spatial distributions and energy spectra of high-energy electron busts caused by various local geophysical phenomena were analyzed.
