Ionospheric electron heating by resonant standing shear Alfvén waves in Earth's magnetosphere is investigated. It is demonstrated that in field line resonances (FLRs), electron heating by Alfvén waves produces ionization and large changes in the ionospheric Pedersen conductivity. This leads to a...
On the basis of magnetohydrodynamic simulation results for northward interplanetary magnetic field ( IMF) and significant dipole tilt, we describe internal reconnection processes that occur earthward of the magnetopause subsequent to magnetopause reconnection. We discuss the associated...
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...
