Self‐consistent electron acceleration due to inertial Alfvén wave pulsesournal of Geophysical Research: Space Physics, 110(A10), [ppDownload
We present self-consistent kinetic simulations of the electron response to finite duration shear Alfven wave pulses in a magnetized plasma. In Earth's magnetosphere, the evidence suggests that parallel electric fields in inertial scale shear Alfven waves can accelerate electrons in the...
We investigate parallel electron acceleration due to inertial Alfven wave pulses in the presence of Lorentzian ( kappa) distribution functions which possess high-energy tails. A linear kinetic dispersion relation for inertial Alfven waves is derived whose solutions are used to guide the analysis...
Internal gravity waves transport energy and momentum in both the atmosphere and the ocean. This physical process occurs at such small length scales that it is not captured by coarse resolution numerical models of weather and climate. A series of experiments is presented that model the generation...
The Monaco Glacier reaches sea level on the north coast of Spitzbergen, Norway. The fresh water flowing under the glacier mixes with sea water and creates the turbulence visible in the photograph. This brings sea life to the surface and attracts thousands of sea birds to the area. August 2008
We report upon an experimental study of internal gravity waves generated by the large-amplitude vertical oscillations of a circular cylinder in uniformly stratified fluid. Quantitative measurements are performed using a modified synthetic schlieren technique for strongly stratified solutions of...
