  • About the Edition

    The theory of waves in plasma is developed and applied to various wave phenomena in the magnetosphere. In Part 1 the theory of wave propagation in cold, warm and hot plasmas is developed. Particular attention is paid to the forms of refractive index surfaces, ray surfaces and group velocity surfaces which allow the visualization of the wave fronts which occur under different conditions. There is a full treatment of the interaction between waves and particles. These treatments are copiously illustrated in an attempt to give the reader an intentive feel for the nature of the phenomena. In Part 2 the theory is applied to a variety of natural wave phenomena which occur in the magnetosphere.

      New Plasma Wave Observations from Earth’s Magnetosphere. The first simultaneous observations of multiple electromagnetic wave types in Earth’s magnetosphere may inaugurate a . It is a magnetosphere whose physics is dominated by internal sources of plasma and energy. This book consists of twelve carefully interwoven articles written by leading space scientists who summarize our state of knowledge of the physics of the magnetosphere surrounding the planet Jupiter.

    The Inner Magnetosphere Formation and Properties of the Ionosphere Geomagnetic Disturbances Space Weather Effects 3 ULF Plasma Waves in the Magnetosphere Basic Properties of a Plasma Particle Motions Motions of Isolated Charged Particles First Adiabatic Invariant The book provides an extensive theoretical treatment of whistler-mode propagation, instabilities, and damping in a collisionless plasma. It takes into account different aspects of the electron distribution function, such as temperature, anisotropy, loss cone character and the existence of beams, each of which is of relevance to the study of plasma dynamics, particularly in the conditions of.

    A Birkeland current is a set of currents that flow along geomagnetic field lines connecting the Earth's magnetosphere to the Earth's high latitude the Earth's magnetosphere, the currents are driven by the solar wind and interplanetary magnetic field and by bulk motions of plasma through the magnetosphere (convection indirectly driven by the interplanetary environment). More specifically, the Earth’s magnetosphere is the region of space where the Earth’s magnetic field is confined by the solar wind plasma, blowing outward from the Sun. The magnetosphere prevents most of the particles from the Sun, carried by solar wind, from hitting the Earth.

This book is a study of plasma waves which are observed in the earth's magnetosphere. The emphasis is on a thorough, but concise, treatment of the necessary theory and the use of this theory to understand the manifold varieties of waves which are observed by ground-based instruments and by satellites.

Space measurements have provided a wealth of data on wave phenomena, plasma parameters, and energetic particle characteristics within the earth's magnetosphere. In the present paper, the generation, propagation, and interaction of plasma waves are discussed, along with the interpretation of the observations.

Data on plasma waves from other planetary magnetospheres and cosmic plasma. Thus, geophysicists now have a unique tool that can be applied to study the solid Earth as well as its gas-plasma shells - the ionosphere and magnetosphere.

This book integrates topics pertaining to all scales of the MHD-waves, emphasizing the linkages between the ULF-waves below the ionosphere on the ground and magnetospheric MHD-waves.

Such plasma—which Cluster found to, surprisingly, dominate the magnetosphere's volume up to 70% of the time—is thought to play a key role in.

Wave-particle interactions are a key influence on radiation belt particle dynamics. Here electron cyclotron resonance with very-low-frequency chorus, extremely-low-frequency hiss, and electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves in the Earth’s dipole magnetosphere is analyzed.

In this first of two companion papers, it is assumed that wave propagation is field aligned. Electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves are transverse plasma waves generated in the inner magnetosphere by ring current ions with perpendicular temperature anisotropy and are typically registered on the ground in the Pc1‐2 frequency range.

The remarkable OGO satellite series of the s revealed a wide variety of natural plasma wave activity in space and stimulated theorists to consider the role of wave-particle energy and momentum exchange in affecting the distribution of geomagnetically trapped particles in the magnetosphere.
