Short summary
From the data on the protons of the Earth’s radiation belts, the rate of radial diffusion of these particles is directly calculated. This is done by solving the systems of equations which describe the balance of radial transport/acceleration and ionization losses of protons. These results are very consistent with the radial diffusion of particles under the influence of the electric field pulsations in the range of the drift frequencies of the protons around Earth.
