Charged particle behavior in the growth and damping stages of ultralow frequency waves: Theory and Van Allen Probes observationsDownload
Ultralow frequency (ULF) electromagnetic waves in Earth's magnetosphere can accelerate charged particles via a process called drift resonance. In the conventional drift resonance theory, a default assumption is that the wave growth rate is time independent, positive, and extremely small. However,...
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...
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...
