Basic Space Plasma Physics
This textbook deals with the requirements of space physics. The first part starts with a description of the Earth's plasma environment, followed by a derivation of single particle motions in
The electron–cyclotron maser for astrophysical application
The electron–cyclotron maser is a process that generates coherent radiation from plasma. In the last two decades, it has gained increasing attention as a dominant mechanism of producing high-power
Advanced space plasma physics
Builds on the fluid and kinetic theory of equilibria and waves presented in a companion textbook, "Basic Space Plasma Physics" (by the same authors), but can also serve as a stand-alone text. It
Auroral Plasma Physics
1. Introduction.- 1.1 Visible Aurorae.- 1.2 Ionospheric Framework.- 1.3 Magnetospheric Framework.- 1.4 Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling.- 1.5 Large Scale Magnetospheric Flows and Dynamics.- 1.6 An
Magnetically-Driven Planetary Radio Emissions and Application to Extrasolar Planets
At least six intense nonthermal planetary radio emissions are known in our solar system: the auroral radio emissions from the Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, and the radio bursts from the
Magnetic field fluctuations across the Earth’s bow shock
Abstract. We present a statistical analysis of 132 dayside (LT 0700-1700) bow shock crossings of the AMPTE/IRM spacecraft. We perform a superposed epoch analysis of low frequency, magnetic power
Waveform and packet structure of lion roars
The Equator-S magnetometer is very sensitive and has a sampling rate of normally 128 Hz. The high sampling rate allows for the first time fluxgate magnetometer measurements of ELF waves between the
Turbulence generated by a gas of electron acoustic solitons
The characteristics of the electrostatic turbulence generated by a gas of electron acoustic solitons are investigated. Electron acoustic solitons are shown to propagate in magnetized plasmas up to
Fundamentals of collisionless shocks for astrophysical application, 1. Non-relativistic shocks
A comprehensive review is given of the theory and properties of nonrelativistic shocks in hot collisionless plasmas—in view of their possible application in astrophysics. Understanding
Low‐frequency waves in the near‐Earth plasma sheet
The authors present an analysis of plasma wave measurements in the plasma sheet in the frequency range from 0.1 mHz to 8 Hz. They compute power spectra in several different bands, and look at this
