A Case Study of Nonresonant Mode 3-s ULF Waves Observed by MMS
(American Geophysical Union, 2020-11-16)
The nature of the 3-s ultralow frequency (ULF) wave in the Earth's foreshock region and the associated wave-particle interaction are not yet well understood. We investigate the 3-s ULF waves using Magnetospheric Multiscale ...
Reconstruction of Electron and Ion Distribution Functions in a Magnetotail Reconnection Diffusion Region
(American Geophysical Union, 2020-05-23)
In the diffusion region of magnetotail reconnection, particle distributions are highly structured, exhibiting triangular shapes and multiple striations that deviate dramatically from the Maxwellian distribution. Fully ...
Solitary Magnetic Structures at Quasi-Parallel Collisionless Shocks: Formation
(American Geophysical Union, 2020-12-11)
Abstract Solitary magnetic structures known as SLAMS (short large-amplitude magnetic structures) have been considered as essential elements of collisionless shocks with quasi-parallel geometries. Yet the physics underlying ...
Magnetopause Reconnection and Indents Induced by Foreshock Turbulence
(American Geophysical Union, 2021-05-31)
Abstract Based on global hybrid simulation results, we predict that foreshock turbulence can reach the magnetopause and lead to reconnection as well as Earth-sized indents. Both the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) and ...
Ion-scale Current Structures in Short Large-amplitude Magnetic Structures
(IOP Publishing, 2020-07-30)
We investigate electric current structures in Short Large-Amplitude Magnetic Structures (SLAMS) in the terrestrial ion foreshock region observed by the Magnetospheric Multiscale mission. The structures with intense ...
HYPERS simulations of solar wind interactions with the Earth's magnetosphere and the Moon
The hybrid simulations, where the ions are treated kinetically and the electrons as a fluid, seek to describe ion microphysics with maximum physical fidelity. The hybrid approach addresses the fundamental need for space ...
