Statistical characteristics of bursty bulk flow events
Using a common methodology to analyze data from the AMPTE/IRM and ISEE 2 satellites the authors report on the statistical properties of bursty bulk flow events (BBFs) in the inner plasma sheet (IPS).Expand
The Permanent and Inductive Magnetic Moments of Ganymede
Data acquired by the Galileo magnetometer on five passes by Ganymede have been used to characterize Ganymede's internal magnetic moments. Three of the five passes were useful for determination of theExpand
Bursty bulk flows in the inner central plasma sheet: An effective means of earthward transport in the magnetotail
High speed flows in the Earth's Inner Central Plasma Sheet (ICPS) occur during enhanced flow intervals that have been termed Bursty Bulk Flow (BBF) events. The importance of different flow magnitudeExpand
Subsurface Oceans on Europa and Callisto: Constraints from Galileo Magnetometer Observations
Magnetic field perturbations measured during Galileo flybys of Europa and Callisto are consistent with dipole fields induced by the temporal variations of the ambient jovian magnetospheric field.Expand
Flow bursts, braking, and Pi2 pulsations
We examine six near-Earth dipolarization events during which rapid flows were observed by Geotail at distances between 8 and 15 RE in the magnetotail. Each flow event was associated with localExpand
Galileo magnetometer measurements: a stronger case for a subsurface ocean at Europa.
The Galileo magnetometer measured changes in the magnetic field predicted if a current-carrying outer shell, such as a planet-scale liquid ocean, is present beneath the icy surface of Europa. Expand
Induced magnetic fields as evidence for subsurface oceans in Europa and Callisto
P perturbations of the external magnetic fields (associated with Jupiter's inner magnetosphere) in the vicinity of both Europa and Callisto are reported, and it is argued that these conducting layers may best be explained by the presence of salty liquid-water oceans. Expand
Discovery of Ganymede's magnetic field by the Galileo spacecraft
THE Galileo spacecraft has now passed close to Jupiter's largest moon—Ganymede—on two occasions, the first at an altitude of 838 km, and the second at an altitude of just 264 km. Here we report theExpand
Relativistic electrons in the outer radiation belt: Differentiating between acceleration mechanisms
[1] Many theoretical models have been developed to explain the rapid acceleration to relativistic energies of electrons that form the Earth's radiation belts. However, after decades of research, noneExpand
