Analysis of the application of collision cross sections and ion neutral reaction rates in the upper atmosphere modeling
Review and analysis of atomic collision data (such as collision cross sections and ion-neutral reaction rates) used in the upper atmospheric modeling for Earth and other planets are presented. This work gives the first ...
Solar wind control of the open magnetosphere: Comparison of GGS/polar images and theory
This investigation explores the connection between the open polar cap magnetic flux phiPCF and interplanetary conditions. phi PCF is determined from GGS/Polar VIS Earth Camera far ultraviolet observations of the aurora ...
Low frequency plasma waves at Mars
Mars Global Surveyor's magnetometer/electron reflectometer (MAG/ER) experiment has returned over eight years of observations of low frequency plasma waves produced in the interaction of the solar wind with the Martian ...
Geometrical optics for quasi-P waves: Theories and numerical methods
The quasi-P wave in anisotropic solids is of practical importance in obtaining maximal imaging resolution in seismic exploration. The geometrical optics term in the asymptotic expansion for the wave characterizes the high ...
