The magnetic field experiment on WIND will provide data for studies of a broad range of scales of structures and fluctuation characteristics of the interplanetary magnetic field throughout the mission, and, where appropriate, relate them to the statics and dynamics of the magnetosphere. The basic instrument of the Magnetic Field Investigation (MFI) is a boom-mounted dual triaxial fluxgate magnetometer and associated electronics. The dual configuration provides redundancy and also permits… 
The ACE Magnetic Fields Experiment
The magnetic field experiment on ACE provides continuous measurements of the local magnetic field in the interplanetary medium. These measurements are essential in the interpretation of simultaneous
In-flight calibration of the NEAR magnetometer
Comparison of solar wind magnetic held measurements from the WIND spacecraft and NEAR from January 22-24, 1997, before and after the Earth swing-by maneuver, confirm that the resulting NEAR magnetic field measurements are accurate to 1-2 nT.
Spacecraft and interplanetary contributions to the magnetic environment on-board LISA Pathfinder
LISA Pathfinder (LPF) has been a space-based mission designed to test new technologies that will be required for a gravitational wave observatory in space. Magnetically driven forces play a key role
Periodic variations of magnetosheath energetic electron flux associated with global Pc5 pulsations
Measurements from the Wind spacecraft in the solar wind, the Geotail spacecraft in the magnetosheath, and multiple magnetometers on the ground are combined to study a unique electron flux modulation
Multisatellite observations of the magnetosphere response to changes in the solar wind and interplanetary magnetic field
Abstract. We employ multipoint observations of the Van Allen Probes, THEMIS, GOES and Cluster to present case and statistical studies of the electromagnetic field, plasma and particle response to
Interplanetary magnetic field connection to the L1 Lagrangian orbit during upstream energetic ion events
Energetic ions (>15 keV) moving upstream from the Earth's bow shock frequently appear at the sunward Lagrangian point (L1) ∼1.5 × 106 km upstream from Earth. The most common orientation of the
The subsolar magnetosheath and magnetopause for high solar wind ram pressure : WIND observations
On a rapid inward pass through the subsolar magnetosheath (MSH) and magnetopause (MP), the WIND spacecraft initially encountered a moderately-compressed low-magnetic shear MP (at a radial distance of
Determination of Particle Sources for a Geotail Distribution Function Observed on May 23, 1995
On May 23, 1995, the Comprehensive Plasma Instrumentation (CPI) onboard the Geotail spacecraft observed a complex and structured ion distribution function near the magnetotail midplane at x


The main magnetic field of Jupiter
The main magnetic field of Jupiter has been measured by the Goddard Space Flight Center flux gate magnetometer on Pioneer 11, and analysis of the data yields a more detailed model than that obtained
The earth's magnetosphere under continued forcing - Substorm activity during the passage of an interplanetary magnetic cloud
In this third paper on magnetic clouds and their interaction with the terrestrial magnetosphere we focus on substorm activity attending the 30-hour-long passage of the magnetic cloud seen at 1 AU on
Magnetic loop behind an interplanetary shock: Voyager, Helios and IMP-8 observations
Magnetic field and plasma data from five spacecraft (Voyager 1 and 2, Helios 1 and 2, and IMP 8) were used to analyze the flow behind an interplanetary shock. The shock was followed by a turbulent
The SSC on July 29, 1977 and its propagation within the magnetosphere
At 0027 UT on July 29, 1977 an interplanetary shock wave arrived at the front side magnetosphere and triggered substantial geomagnetic activity throughout the day. The propagation of the resulting
Solar wind-magnetosphere coupling
An AGU Chapman Conference on Solar Wind-Magnetosphere Coupling was held at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, February 12–15, 1985. There were 95
Geomagnetic activity associated with earth passage of interplanetary shock disturbances and coronal mass ejections
Coronal mass ejection events (CMEs) are important occasional sources of plasma and magnetic field in the solar wind at 1 AU, accounting for approximately 10% of all solar wind measurements in the
The interaction of a magnetic cloud with the Earth: Ionospheric convection in the northern and southern hemispheres for a wide range of quasi‐steady interplanetary magnetic field conditions
This is the second of three papers which study a large interplanetary magnetic cloud, and its interaction with the earth's magnetosphere. Here the authors study flows within the ionosphere during the
Origin of interplanetary southward magnetic fields responsible for major magnetic storms near solar maximum (1978–1979)
The origins of the interplanetary southward Bz which cause the 10 major (Dst < −100 nT) magnetic storms detected during the 500 days of study (August 16, 1978, to December 28, 1979) of the Gonzalez
Advances in magnetospheric storm and substorm research: 1989–1991
Geomagnetic storms represent the magnetospheric response to fast solar wind and unusually large southward interplanetary magnetic fields that are caused by solar processes and resulting dynamics in
