The Earth's plasma sheet as a laboratory for flow turbulence in high-β MHD
The bulk flows and magnetic-field fluctuations of the plasma sheet are investigated using single-point measurements from the ISEE-2 Fast Plasma Experiment and fluxgate magnetometer. TenExpand

Initial ISEE magnetometer results - Magnetopause observations
The magnetic field profiles across the magnetopause obtained by the ISEE-1 and -2 spacecraft separated by only a few hundred kilometers are examined for four passes. During one of these passes theExpand

Observations of reconnection of interplanetary and lobe magnetic field lines at the high‐latitude magnetopause
Measurements made with the Fast Plasma Experiment on ISEE 2 in the vicinity of the high-latitude, dusk magnetopause near the terminator plane, at a time when the local magnetosheath and tail lobeExpand

Understanding the Lunar Surface and Space-Moon Interactions
The surface of the Moon is a critical boundary that shapes our understanding of the Moon as a whole. All geologic mapping and remote sensing techniques utilize only the outermost portion of the Moon.Expand

Magnetospheric plasma analyzer for spacecraft with constrained resources
A light‐weight, low‐power, plasma analyzer is described that can be used for measuring the plasma environments of spacecraft with constrained resources. A unique system using a single electrostaticExpand

FAST satellite observations of large‐amplitude solitary structures
We report observations of “fast solitary waves” that are ubiquitous in downward current regions of the mid-altitude auroral zone. The single-period structures have large amplitudes (up to 2.5 V/m),Expand

Polar hydrogen deposits on the Moon
Neutron and gamma-ray data measured using the Lunar Prospector spectrometers were analyzed to define the enhanced hydrogen deposits near both poles of the Moon. Combining the new low-altitude neutronExpand

Plasma flow reversals at the dayside magnetopause and the origin of asymmetric polar cap convection
A number of events have been observed in the Los Alamos/Garching fast plasma experiment data from ISEE 2 within ±3 hours of noon wherein the y component of the plasma flow within the low latitudeExpand

ISEE observations of flux transfer events at the dayside magnetopause
Magnetic field measurements from the ISEE 1 and 2 spacecraft are examined in the vicinity of the magnetopause near local noon on a typical pass when the magnetosheath field is southward. The dataExpand

Improved modeling of Lunar Prospector neutron spectrometer data: Implications for hydrogen deposits at the lunar poles
[1] New models have been computed for the Lunar Prospector (LP) thermal and epithermal neutron counting rates using the particle transport code MCNPX. This work improves upon previous studies byExpand
