In this paper we examine the anisotropy, minimum variance, and related distinguishing plasma parameters of small-scale fluctuations occurring in the solar wind. We use Helios 2 data taken at solar minimum, at a time when high- and low-speed streams are clearly distinguished and a separation of the characteristics of fluctuations from disparate solar sources is facilitated. We find that while variance directions of fluctuations are generally aligned with the mean magnetic field in regions of… CONTINUE READING
