Vortex-like Structure in the Cusp–Magnetosheath Interface


Two-point observations by the INTERBALL satellite pair unveiled a presence of a large vortex-like structure filled by slow and heated plasma in the outer cusp during periods of the positive BZ interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) component. We have found the rotation of the magnetic field and the decrease of its magnitude connected with the presence of a hot… (More)
