    Since plasma is electrically charged, it’s influenced by electric and magnetic fields. Jupiter’s magnetic field, for example, confines plasma inside its magnetosphere, channeling and pumping it through space, which generates various phenomena like Jupiter’s auroras, radiation belts and radio signals. The region where high-energy electrons and ions are trapped in the magnetosphere is called the ‘radiation belt’ (Van Allen belt). The radiation belt consists of an inner belt that is distributed around an altitude of 3, km and an outer belt that is distributed around an altitude of 20, km in the equatorial plane, as shown in Figure 6.

      The inner radiation belt, discovered by Explorers 1 and 3, turns out to be a slowly accumulating by-product of cosmic radiation, as explained in a later section. The ring current however (its energetic part is often called the "outer radiation belt"), owes its existence to magnetic storms, which can replenish it in the matter of hours.   The outer radiation belt is nowadays seen as part of the plasma trapped in the magnetosphere. The name "radiation belt" is usually applied to the more energetic part of that plasma population, e.g. ions of about 1 Mev of energy (see energy units).The more numerous lower-energy particles are known as the "ring current", since they carry the current responsible for magnetic storms.

    Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune also have radiation belts — but, again, these are much weaker than Jupiter’s. Jupiter’s magnetosphere is the largest structure in the solar system. The Earth's radiation belts are just one part of the system called the magnetosphere. The radiation belts of the Earth are made up of electrons, protons and heavier atomic ions. These particles get trapped in the magnetic field of the Earth. The radiation belts, like the .

The magnetosphere shields our home planet from solar and cosmic particle radiation, as well as erosion of the atmosphere by the solar wind - the constant flow of charged particles streaming off the sun.

Earth's magnetosphere is part of a dynamic, interconnected system that responds to solar, planetary, and interstellar conditions. The study of the radiation belts and the subsequent exploration of the magnetosphere – a region of the peritoneal space in which the action of the geomagnetic field is predominantly – allowed for the theoretical interpretation of their origin and the investigation of the phenomena from the high atmosphere (such as, for example, polar auras.

A Van Allen radiation belt is a zone of energetic charged particles, most of which originate from the solar wind, that are captured by and held around a planet by that planet's magnetic field.

Earth has two such belts and sometimes others may be temporarily created. The discovery of the belts is credited to James Van Allen, and as a result, Earth's belts are known as the Van Allen belts.

Radiation belts are regions of enhanced populations of energetic electrons and protons surrounding the Earth in space. These belts are highly dynamic, increasing and decreasing on time scales of minutes to years.

The high levels of radiation caused by the energetic electrons and protons makes this a very harsh region for satellites. Recent Advances in Understanding Radiation Belt Electron Dynamics Due to Wave–Particle Interactions W.

Charged particles are trapped in the magnetosphere and form intense radiation belts. These belts are similar to the Earth's Van Allen belts, but are many millions of times more intense.
