Modeling the Earth's Magnetosphere using Magnetohydrodynamics
This thesis describes work on building numerical models of the Earth's magnetosphere using magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and other related modeling methods. For many years, models that solve the MHD equations have been the ...
A Method to Compute Three Dimensional Magnetospheric Equilibria with Dipole Tilt and its Application in Estimating Magnetic Flux Tube Volume
In this thesis we describe a new version of a magneto-friction model, which was developed for computing the magnetospheric equilibrium that includes an arbitrary Earth's dipole tilt and interplanetary magnetic field. We ...
Stability of one-dimensional waves in layered media
This thesis presents an interpretation of a result on the stability of waves in layered media with respect to Webster's horn equation and travel-time velocity as a parameter The stability property of waves is related to ...
The nonlinear differential semblance algorithm for plane waves in layered media
This thesis proposes an alternative approach to the output least-squares (OLS) seismic inversion for layered-media. The latter cannot guarantee a reliable solution for either synthetic or field data, because of the existence ...
