  • 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 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 ...
