Geotail observations of magnetic flux ropes in the plasma sheet
[1] Examination of Geotail measurements in the near-tail (X > � 30 RE) has revealed the presence of small flux ropes in the plasma sheet. A total of 73 flux rope events were identified in the GeotailExpand

Solar wind flow about the terrestrial planets 1. Modeling bow shock position and shape
General technique for modeling the position and shape of planetary bow waves are reviewed. A three-parameter method was selected to model the near portion (i.e.,x′ > −1 Rob) of the Venus, earth, andExpand

Three‐dimensional position and shape of the bow shock and their variation with Alfvénic, sonic and magnetosonic Mach numbers and interplanetary magnetic field orientation
A large set of bow shock crossings (i.e., 1392) observed by 17 spacecraft has been used to explore the three-dimensional shape and location of the Earth's bow shock and its dependence on solar windExpand

The Structure of Mercury's Magnetic Field from MESSENGER's First Flyby
During its first flyby of Mercury, the MESSENGER spacecraft measured the planet's near-equatorial magnetic field. The field strength is consistent to within an estimated uncertainty of 10% with thatExpand
