Polar cap response to the 18-21 October 1995 magnetic cloud event
A statistical study of ten years of solar wind particle and magnetic field observations, ionospheric convection measurements, and geomagnetic index data is combined with a case study of the interaction of the 18-21 October ...
Mapping magnetic flux tubes and field aligned currents using two representative magnetospheric models
Among available quantitative magnetospheric models, the Tsyganenko models represent empirical modeling, while the Toffoletto and Hill model is theoretical analysis. By mapping flux tubes between the ionosphere and the ...
Analytical and numerical modeling of the electromagnetic structure of geospace
Geospace is a vast complex system. A portable quantitative model of the geospace electromagnetic structure is the foundation of many researches in the area of space plasma physics. Work described in this dissertation uses ...
A study of Uranian magnetospheric convection
In order to understand and explain the low-energy plasma structures observed by the PLS experiment on Voyager 2 in the Uranian inner magnetosphere, an analytic and self-consistent model of a time-dependent solar-wind driven ...
Small Venusian coronae
The common defining factor of coronae is a distinct annulus of tectonic origin. Current coronae classification is based on an intensive study of coronae primarily with maximum widths in excess of 100 km. Topographically ...
Numerical simulation of the Jovian torus-driven plasma transport
The Rice Convection Model has been modified and applied to the study of the Jovian magnetospheric system, which is interchange unstable. The basic interchange instability of the Io plasma torus is opposed by pressure ...
