Low-frequency whistler waves and shocklets observed at quasi-perpendicular interplanetary shocks

Abstract

[1] We present observations of low-frequency waves (0.25 Hz < f < 10 Hz) at five quasi-perpendicular interplanetary (IP) shocks observed by the Wind spacecraft. Four of the five IP shocks had oblique precursor whistler waves propagating at angles with respect to the magnetic field of 20 –50 and large propagation angles with respect to the shock normal; thus… (More)
