Case studies on correlation between VLF plasma waves and energetic electrons are presented based on data observed by EXOS-B satellite. The frequency range of the observed VLF plasma waves is from 150Hz to 9.5kHz, while the measured energy range of electrons is from 5eV to 11keV. Data observed on specific four passes (Revs. 185, 273, 284, and 588) are examined. Especially data on Rev. 284 are shown in detail because both the VLF waves and energetic electrons are observed continuously over more
