Abstract. Spatial-energy distributions of the stationary fluxes of protons, helium ions and ions of carbon-nitrogen-oxygen (CNO) group, with energy from E = 100 keV to 200 MeV, in the Earth's radiation belts (ERB), at L = 1–8, are considered here by the data of the satellites for 1961–2017. It is find that the results of these measurements line up in the space {E, L} by some regular patterns. Solar-cyclic (11-year) variations in the distributions of protons, helium ions and CNO group ions fluxes in the ERB are studied. In the inner regions of the ERB the ions fluxes decrease with increasing solar activity. It is find, the solar-cyclic variations of fluxes for ions with Z ≥ 2 are much greater than for protons and increase with increasing an atomic number Z of the ions. The possible physical mechanisms leading to formation of this spatial-energy structure and to the solar-cyclic variations of the ERB ion fluxes are discussed.
