Abstract: Context. Protons or heavier ions with anisotropic velocity distributions and non-thermal departure from Maxwellian, are frequently reported in the magnetosphere and at different altitudes in the solar wind. These observations are sustained by an extended number of mechanisms of acceleration in any direction with respect to the interplanetary magnetic field. However, the observed anisotropy is not large and most probably constrained by the kinetic instabilities.
