We present theory and groundbased observations of fieldline resonances (FLRs) excited in Earth's magnetosphere. Three FLR observations are reported, which correspond to largescale standing shear Alfven wave (SAW) oscillations on nightside field lines extending from premidnight to close to...

We present theory and numerical simulations of strong nonlinear effects in standing shear Alfven waves (SAWs) in the Earth's magnetosphere, which is modeled as a finite size box with straight magnetic lines and (partially) reflecting boundaries. In a low beta plasma it is shown that the...

The threedimensional, nonlinear evolution of a shear how (or KelvinHelmholtz (KH)) instability driven by a largeamplitude shear Alfven wave (SAW) in the Earth's magnetosphere is studied by using numerical solutions to the complete set of ideal magnetohydrodynamic equations. An initial setup is...
