The process of magnetospheric radiation belt electron transport driven by ULF waves is studied using a 2-D ideal MHD model for ULF waves in the equatorial plane including day/night asymmetry and a magnetopause boundary, and a test kinetic model for equatorially mirroring electrons. We find that...
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...
Magnetospheric convection and magnetopause shadowing effects in ULF wave‐driven energetic electron transportDownload
Magnetospheric radiation belt electron transport in the presence of ULF waves and a convection electric field is investigated using a model that includes a nightside plasma sheet source and electron losses by magnetopause shadowing. Narrow-band ULF waves launched from a prescribed dayside...
