[1] We employ 2.5‐D electromagnetic, hybrid simulations that treat ions kinetically via particle‐in‐cell methods and electrons as a massless fluid to study the long‐term (hours) nonlinear evolution of electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves in the presence of multiple ion species in the outer magnetosphere. The source of the instability is a small population of hot (few keV) protons, representing plasma sheet ions at L = 9 with perpendicular temperature four times the parallel. In addition to the… CONTINUE READING
