Comparison of the open‐closed separatrix in a global magnetospheric simulation with observations: The role of the ring currentDownload
Kabin, Konstantin, Lu, J. Y., Rankin, Robert, Gombosi, Tamas I., Watt, Clare E. J., Ridley, Aaron J., Toth, Gabor, Milan, Steve E., Zhang, Jichun, Rae, I. Johnathan, Clauer, C. Robert, De Zeeuw, Darren L., Fenrich, Frances
The development of global magnetospheric models, such as Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF), which can accurately reproduce and track space weather processes has high practical utility. We present an interval on 5 June 1998, where the location of the polar cap boundary, or open-closed field...
A new interactive M-I coupling model that describes the dynamic interaction between magnetospheric dispersive waves, compressional modes, and auroral electron precipitations is applied to investigate the geomagnetic electromagnetic pulsations observed in Earth's magnetosphere in terms of...
Electrodynamics of magnetosphere‐ionosphere coupling and feedback on magnetospheric field line resonancesDownload
We present a new dynamic model that describes coupling between standing inertial or ion-acoustic-gyroradius-scale shear Alfven waves, compressional modes, and auroral density disturbances. The model is applied to the excitation of field line resonances (FLRs) in dipolar and stretched geomagnetic...
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...
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...
It is shown that perpendicular gradients in shear Alfvén wave (SAW) dispersion regulate the localization of wave power on nightside geomagnetic L-shells where narrow Field Line Resonances (FLRs) form. We estimate the timescale for this process, ω0tc = 1/equation image, and demonstrate that it is...
Finite element modeling of nonlinear dispersive field line resonances: Trapped shear Alfvén waves inside field‐aligned density structuresDownload
Using a new two- dimensional nonlinear finite element model, we investigate the interaction of dispersive shear Alfven wave ( SAW) field line resonances ( FLRs) and ion acoustic waves in Earth's magnetosphere. We solve the full set of nonlinear reduced MHD equations self- consistently in...
Nonlinear dynamics of a dispersive field line resonance (FLR) is investigated in a dipolar magnetic geometry using a new finite element code TOPO. Time dependent dispersion and steepening of the perpendicular Alfvén velocity profile lead to the acceleration of dispersive effects and to...
The propagating source method for solving the time-dependent Boltzmann equation describing particle propagation in a magnetically turbulent medium is extended to a more realistic case that includes focusing and adiabatic deceleration. The solutions correspond to beam propagation in the solar...
