The WIND magnetic field investigation
The magnetic field experiment on WIND will provide data for studies of a broad range of scales of structures and fluctuation characteristics of the interplanetary magnetic field throughout the
Magnetic field structure of interplanetary magnetic clouds at 1 AU
Interplanetary magnetic clouds, although not dominant, are a relatively common feature of the solar wind at 1 AU. Their diameters at 1 AU fall in the range of 0.2–0.4 AU, and they have enhanced field
Interplanetary acceleration of coronal mass ejections
Using an observed relation between speeds of CMEs near the Sun and in the solar wind, we determine an “effective” acceleration acting on the CMEs. We found a linear relation between this effective
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 Geotail
Some low‐altitude cusp dependencies on the interplanetary magnetic field
Although it has become well established that the low-altitude polar cusp moves equatorward during intervals of southward interplanetary magnetic field (IMF Bz<0), many other important aspects of the
Crossing the Termination Shock into the Heliosheath: Magnetic Fields
Magnetic fields measured by Voyager 1 show that the spacecraft crossed or was crossed by the termination shock on about 16 December 2004 at 94.0 astronomical units, and the cosmic ray intensity increased when B was relatively large in the heliosheath.
A summary of WIND magnetic clouds for years 1995-2003: model-fitted parameters, associated errors and classifications
Abstract. Interplanetary magnetic clouds (MCs) have been identified for the first 8.6 years of the WIND mission, and their magnetic field structures have been parameter-fitted by a static, force
Magnetic fields at the solar wind termination shock
Observations of the magnetic field structure and dynamics of the termination shock made by Voyager 2 on 31 August–1 September 2007 reveal a complex, rippled, quasi-perpendicular supercritical magnetohydrodynamic shock of moderate strength undergoing reformation on a scale of a few hours.
Geotail observations of the Kelvin‐Helmholtz instability at the equatorial magnetotail boundary for parallel northward fields
For several hours on March 24, 1995, the Geotail spacecraft remained near the duskside magnetotail boundary some 15 RE behind the Earth while the solar wind remained very quiet (V=330 km s−1, n=14–21
Magnetic Fields at Uranus
The magnetic field experiment on the Voyager 2 spacecraft revealed a strong planetary magnetic field of Uranus and an associated magnetosphere and fully developed bipolar masnetic tail. The detached
