A nonlinear two-dimensional fluid model describing excitation of the ionospheric Alfven resonator by a shear Alfven wave coming from the magnetosphere is developed. Initially, the plasma is in an equilibrium defined by a balance between the gravity, electric field, and pressure gradient forces....
A two-dimensional nonlinear multi-fluid MHD model of the ionosperic Alfven resonator is presented. The resonator is excited by a packet of shear Alfven waves propagating downward toward the ionosphere from high altitudes. It is shown that the nonlinear (ponderomotive) force of standing...
