Okay, guys, let's get back on track here.
First, the exact size and distribution varies, but not too greatly. It has little effect inside the physiological atmosphere, so airliners and their
passengers receive more radiation than on the surface of the Earth, but less than double that of airliners anywhere else.
Secondly, I am not a "pole shifter" and there is ZERO evidence the South Atlantic Anomaly is evidence that a pole shift is underway. NASA and the
Air Force, for different reasons, monitor all of the variances in the Van Allen Belts and the magnetosphere, and the scientists I worked with at KSC
(NASA) and Cape Canaveral AFS (USAF) were concerned about a lot of things, but not a pole shift in our lifetimes.
Whe the Anomaly is the largest one, there are many smaller variations in the Van Allen Belts, as well as upper atmosphere itself. As I mentioned
earlier, some are tied to Earth anomalies, such as magnetic distortions, etc., while others are as puzzling as the South Atlantic Anomaly. A few such
variations disappear, then reappear, while others are continuous, but seem to wander around a bit.
You guys can keep looking for information, but you don't have to go to "other than normal" scientific sites. Believe me, the information we will
be discussing about this topic will be plenty interesting without any of that added. For the time being, let's stick to the science, please.
