Abstract: Radial transport theory for inner radiation zone MeV ions has been extended by combining radial diffusive transport and losses due to Coulomb friction with local generation of D, T and He-3 ions from nuclear reactions taking place on the inner edge of the inner radiation zone. Based on interactions between high energy trapped protons and upper atmospheric constituents we have included a nuclear reaction yield D, T and He-3 flux source that was numerically derived from a nuclear reaction model code originally developed at the Institute of Nuclear Researches in Moscow, Russia. Magnetospheric transport computations have been made covering the L-shell ran L=1.0-1.6. The resulting MeV energy D, T and He-3 ion flux distributions show a strong influence of the local nuclear source mechanism on the inner zone energetic D, T and He-3 ion content.
