Diamagnetic moments for two Bi2Sr2CaCu2O crystals were measured at different fields H and temperatures. For the higher fields two distinct transition temperatures and are seen, with . By increasing H the line shifts very slowly while shifts much faster to lower temperatures, displaying a clear upward curvature well described by a theory based on Josephson coupling between superconducting clusters. We show further that is dependent on sample homogeneity, which is correlated with oxygen distribution in the high- superconductors.
