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 ...
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 ...
Inner magnetospheric modeling during geomagnetic active times
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 ...
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 ...
