5. SAGA events

The increases of the count rates in the GRBM units, in both energy bands, occurring in proximity to passages over the South Atlantic Geomagnetic Anomaly (hereafter SAGA), have been already treated. Usually they last a few hundreds seconds, showing a smooth time profile, which, in addition the SAGA proximity, reveals the non-GRB origin.
