Magnetospheric Impulse Response for Many Levels of Geomagnetic Activity
The temporal relationship between the solar wind and magnetospheric activity has been studied using 34 intervals of high time resolution IMP 8 solar wind data and the corresponding AL auroralExpand

Structure of the low‐latitude boundary layer
Observations at high temporal resolution of the frontside magnetopause and plasma boundary layer, made with the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory/Max-Planck-Institut, Institut fur ExtraterrestrischeExpand

ISEE 3 observations of traveling compression regions in the Earth`s magnetotail
A traveling compression region (TCR) is a several-minute long compression of the lobe magnetic field produced by a plasmoid as it moves down the tail. They are generally followed by a longer intervalExpand

The magnetospheric boundary layer: Site of plasma, momentum and energy transfer from the magnetosheath into the magnetosphere
Observations with the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) plasma probe and the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) magnetometer on the IMP 6 satellite show that the magnetospheric boundary layer,Expand

Transient phenomena in the magnetotail and their relation to substorms
AbstractRecent observations of magnetic field, plasma flow and energetic electron anisotropies in the magnetotail plasma sheet during substorms have provided strong support for the idea that aExpand

The horse-collar aurora: A frequent pattern of the aurora in quiet times
Reported here are DE 1 auroral imager observations of an auroral configuration which is given the name “horse-collar aurora.” The horse-collar pattern comprises the total area of auroral emissionsExpand

Characteristics of the plasma sheet in the Earth's magnetotail
Vela satellite observations of electrons and protons with E > 100 ev have shown that a sheet of plasma with enhanced energy density stretches across the earth's magnetotail from the dusk to the dawnExpand

Multiple-satellite studies of magnetospheric substorms - Distinction between polar magnetic substorms and convection-driven negative bays
It is generally believed that long intervals of intense (500–1000 γ) negative auroral zone bays are caused by magnetospheric substorm occurrences at a high repetition rate. Since individual substormExpand

Evolution of the Earth's distant magnetotail: ISEE 3 electron plasma results
Electron plasma measurements made by ISEE 3 from October 18, 1982, through April 19, 1983, were examined for signatures identifying the spatial evolution of the earth's magnetotail out to distancesExpand

High‐energy magnetospheric protons and their dependence on geomagnetic and interplanetary conditions
High-energy (E > 0.3 MeV) proton increases within the magnetosphere both at synchronous orbit (6.6 RE) and in the plasma sheet (∼18 RE) have been studied. Measurements at 6.6 RE reveal that mostExpand
