Abstract. In magnetospheric missions, burst mode data sampling should be triggered in the presence of processes of scientific or opera- tional interest. We present an unsupervised classification method for magnetospheric regions, that could constitute the first-step of a multi-step method for the automatic identification of magnetospheric processes of interest. Our method is based on Self Organizing Maps (SOMs), and we test it preliminarily on data points from global magnetospheric simulations…

This work shows that integrating DL technologies into traditional computational methods is a viable approach for developing next-generation PIC algorithms.


Automatic Classification of Plasma Regions in Near-Earth Space With Supervised Machine Learning: Application to Magnetospheric Multi Scale 2016–2019 Observations
This study applies the fully convolutional neural network (FCN) deep machine-leaning algorithm to the recent Magnetospheric Multi Scale mission data in order to classify 10 key plasma regions in near-Earth space for the period 2016-2019, indicating that such method can be successfully applied to any in situ spacecraft plasma database.
Automatic detection of the Earth Bow Shock and Magnetopause from in-situ data with machine learning
The method was used to identify 14186 magnetopause crossings and 16192 bow shock crossings in the data of 10 different spacecrafts of the THEMIS, ARTEMIS, Cluster and Double Star missions and for a total of 79 cumulated years.
Automated classification of plasma regions using 3D particle energy distribution
The 3D-CNN and data processing software could easily be deployed on ground-based computers and provide classification for the whole MMS database, opening up the possibility for deployment in data-centers or in situ operation onboard the spacecraft.
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
Global simulation of the Geospace Environment Modeling substorm challenge event
We use a global model of Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere to simulate the Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM) substorm challenge event of November 24, 1996. We compare our results to
Using global magnetospheric models for simulation and interpretation of Swarm external field measurements
We have used a global model of the solar wind magnetosphere interaction to model the high latitude part of the external contributions to the geomagnetic field near the Earth. The model also provides
Flux Transfer Events: 1. generation mechanism for strong southward IMF
Abstract. We use a global numerical model of the interaction of the solar wind and the interplanetary magnetic field with Earth's magnetosphere to study the formation process of Flux Transfer Events
Classification of Magnetosheath Jets Using Neural Networks and High Resolution OMNI (HRO) Data
Magnetosheath jets are transient, localized dynamic pressure enhancements found downstream of the Earth's bow shock in the magnetosheath region. Using a pre-existing database of magnetosheath jets we
Automatic Region Identification over the MMS Orbit by Partitioning n-T space
This method partitions the number density and ion temperature plane into sub- planes for each region, fitting boundaries between the sub-planes using a machine learning technique known as the support vector machine.
Magnetospheric Multiscale Overview and Science Objectives
Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS), a NASA four-spacecraft constellation mission launched on March 12, 2015, will investigate magnetic reconnection in the boundary regions of the Earth’s magnetosphere,
