The THEMIS Mission
The Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (THEMIS) mission is the fifth NASA Medium-class Explorer (MIDEX), launched on February 17, 2007 to determine the trigger and
The THEMIS ESA Plasma Instrument and In-flight Calibration
The THEMIS plasma instrument is designed to measure the ion and electron distribution functions over the energy range from a few eV up to 30 keV for electrons and 25 keV for ions. The instrument
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).
Bursty bulk flows in the inner central plasma sheet
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 magnitude
Neutral line model of substorms: Past results and present view
The near‐Earth neutral line (NENL) model of magnetospheric substorms is reviewed. The observed phenomenology of substorms is discussed including the role of coupling with the solar wind and
Substorm onset observations by IMAGE-FUV
[1] Over the first 2.5 years of operation, the FUV instrument on the IMAGE spacecraft observed more than 2400 substorm onsets in the Northern Hemisphere. The observations confirm earlier results of
THEMIS observations of electromagnetic ion cyclotron wave occurrence: Dependence on AE, SYMH, and solar wind dynamic pressure
[1] Electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves are transverse plasma waves generated by anisotropic proton distributions with Tperp > Tpara. They are believed to play an important role in the
The ARTEMIS Mission
The Acceleration, Reconnection, Turbulence, and Electrodynamics of the Moon’s Interaction with the Sun (ARTEMIS) mission is a spin-off from NASA’s Medium-class Explorer (MIDEX) mission THEMIS, a five
Global distribution of wave amplitudes and wave normal angles of chorus waves using THEMIS wave observations
[1] The global distribution of chorus wave amplitudes and their wave normal angles is investigated using high-resolution wave spectra and waveform data from THEMIS for lower-band and upper-band
A THEMIS multicase study of dipolarization fronts in the magnetotail plasma sheet
[1] We discuss results of a superposed epoch analysis of dipolarization fronts, rapid (δt 10 nT) increases in the northward magnetic field component, observed during six Time History of Events and
