Regions of resonance in (equatorial pitch angle \(\alpha_{\text{eq}}\), magnetic latitude \(\lambda\)) space for the Landau resonance between magnetosonic waves and radiation belt electrons at L = 3 (inside the plasmasphere) for six indicated kinetic energies (from top to bottom: 30 keV, 100 keV, 300 keV, 1 MeV, 3 MeV, and 10 MeV) and for two specific wave normal angles (from left to right \(\theta = 87^{\circ}\) and \(\theta = 89^{\circ}\)). The wave frequency band is adopted as 0.0026 < \(\omega /\left( {\varOmega_{ce} } \right)_{\text{eq}}\) < 0.0044, corresponding to a frequency range of 83–141 Hz
