The two-dimensional distribution of intensity and polarization has been calculated for the synchrotron radiation from electrons trapped in a dipolar magnetic field around a planet. From formulas recently published by Legg and Westfold, the circular polarization is included. The integrated data from these maps are used to suggest models with two thick belts of electrons to account for the decimetric radiation from Jupiter.
