    • Inner magnetospheric modeling during geomagnetic active times 

      Yang, Jian (2010)
      In this thesis we show that the entropy parameter PV5/3 , where P is the pressure and V is the volume of a flux tube with unit magnetic flux, plays a central role in the earthward plasma convection from the near- and ...
    • RCM-E simulation of a thin arc preceded by a north-south-aligned auroral streamer 

      Yang, Jian; Toffoletto, Frank R.; Wolf, Richard A. (2014)
      The Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (THEMIS) all-sky imager data have recently revealed a repeatable sequence that occurs during many auroral substorms, in which a newly formed thin arc ...
    • RCM-E simulation of bimodal transport in the plasma sheet 

      Yang, Jian; Wolf, Richard A.; Toffoletto, Frank R.; Sazykin, Stanislav; Wang, Chih-Ping (2014)
      Plasma sheet transport is bimodal, consisting of both large-scale adiabatic convection and intermittent bursty flows in both earthward and tailward directions. We present two comparison simulations with the Rice Convection ...
