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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
