In the report "Geomagnetic origin for transient particle events from nuclear reactorpowered setellites" by G. H. Share et al. (28 Apr., p. 444), the following corrections should be notd. The last sentence of the second full paragraph on 445 should have read, "Their report provides detailed confirmation of the origin of the SMM events." On page 446, the last sentence of the caption of figure 3 should have read, "Rate is in counts per 0.5 s." On page 447, text references to figures 2 and 3 were interchanged. The sixth sentence of the fifth full paragraph should have read,"The concentration of particles on this L shell explains the peak observed by the GRS." The fourth sentence of the sixth paragraph should have read, "The spike near 12 min coincides with the time when SMM reached L shell on which positrons had been deposited about a minute earlier." Reference 12 should have read, "Solar Geophysical Data Prompt Reports, No. 535 (Pt. 1), H. E. Coffey, Ed. (National Geophysical Data Center, Boulder, CO, 1989)."
