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 three-dimensional compressible resistive magnetohydrodynamic simulation code, with inclusion of the fully generalized Ohm's law, has been developed to study the nonlinear evolution of field line resonances in Earth's magnetosphere. A simple Cartesian box model of an inhomogeneous plasma with...
Interaction of ULF waves with different ion species: Pitch angle and phase space density implicationsDownload
ULF waves can accelerate/decelerate the charged particles including the ring current ions via drift-bounce resonance, which play an important role in the dynamics of ring current during storm times. This study compares the different behaviors of oxygen ions (10.5–35.1 keV) and protons (0.3–12.3...
We describe nonlinear resonance absorption of compressional Alfven waves in a model magnetosphere. It is shown that the ponderomotive force of excited standing shear Alfven waves can lead to nonlinear saturation and spatial structuring of field line resonances and that in low-beta plasmas...
