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...
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...
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...
