Spatial correlation of solar-wind turbulence from two-point measurements.
Interplanetary turbulence, the best studied case of low frequency plasma turbulence, is the only directly quantified instance of astrophysical turbulence. Here, magnetic field correlation analysis,Expand
Accurate estimation of third-order moments from turbulence measurements
Abstract. Politano and Pouquet's law, a generalization of Kolmogorov's four-fifths law to incompressible MHD, makes it possible to measure the energy cascade rate in incompressible MHD turbulence byExpand
Shocks inside CMEs: A survey of properties from 1997 to 2006
We report on 49 fast-mode forward shocks propagating inside coronal mass ejections (CMEs) as measured by Wind and ACE at 1 AU from 1997 to 2006. Compared to typical CME-driven shocks, these shocksExpand
Influence of precatastrophic extension and other effects on local stresses in cracked plates under bending fields
Using the technique of stress freezing and slicing, a set of photoelastic experiments was conducted on plates, each containing a single through internal crack in a remote cylindrical bending field,Expand
Prebreakdown processes in electrically stressed insulating liquids
It has previously been reported that a spray originates from high-voltage point electrodes in n-hexane. This paper is concerned with more detailed investigation of that spray. Although it is moreExpand
Liquid motion and internal pressure in electrically stressed insulating liquids
The electrical conductivity of hexane and transformer oil was found to be reduced by filtering the liquid through filters of pore size down to 10 nm, whereas no change in the liquid motion under theExpand
Spectral distribution of the cross helicity in the solar wind.
The normalized cross helicity is associated more or less equally with all angular components of the fluctuations, suggesting that "wavelike" and "turbulencelike" fluctuations are strongly coupled. Expand
Solar wind at 33 AU: Setting bounds on the Pluto interaction for New Horizons
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flies past Pluto on 14 July 2015, carrying two instruments that detect charged particles. Pluto has a tenuous, extended atmosphere that is escaping the planet's weakExpand
Spectral properties of large gradual solar energetic particle events - II -Systematic Q/M-dependence of heavy ion spectral breaks
We fit the $\sim$0.1-500 MeV/nucleon H-Fe spectra in 46 large SEP events surveyed by Desai et al. (2016) with the double power-law Band function to obtain a normalization constant, low- andExpand
Coronas in insulating liquids
Light from coronas at tungsten point electrodes in a number of insulating liquids has been photographed and the dimensions of the luminous region measured. It was found that the radius of curvatureExpand
