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...
Magnetospheric field‐line resonances: Ground‐based observations and modelingournal of Geophysical Research: Space Physics, 110(A10), [ppDownload
We present theory and ground-based observations of field-line resonances (FLRs) excited in Earth's magnetosphere. Three FLR observations are reported, which correspond to large-scale standing shear Alfven wave (SAW) oscillations on nightside field lines extending from premidnight to close to...
