A three-dimensional compressible resistive magnetohydrodynamic simulation code, with inclusion of the fully generalized Ohm's law, has been developed to study the nonlinear evolution of field line resonances in Earth's magnetosphere. A simple Cartesian box model of an inhomogeneous plasma with...
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...
Significant populations of electrons with energies of tens of keV appear in the Earth's inner central plasma sheet during the substorm expansion phase. Increasing observational evidence indicates that these injections begin at a radially narrow but azimuthally extended transition between very...
The emission of propagating MHD waves from the boundaries of flow channels that are unstable to the Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability (KHI) in magnetized plasma is investigated. The KHI and MHD wave emission are found to be two competing processes. It is shown that the fastest growing modes of the KHI...
