Short summary
With observations of the Cluster spacecraft, we report in situ evidence of energetic ions scattered into the loss cone during the inbound pass from the plasma sheet into the plasmasphere. Our results suggest that energetic ions scattering into the loss cone in the central plasma sheet and the outer boundary of the plasmaspheric plume are attributed to the field line curvature scattering mechanism and EMIC wave scattering mechanism, respectively.
