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...
