Estimates of the plasma pressure contribution to the magnetic field measurements range from ~20 nT in the magnetospheric lobes to over nT within the plas-ma sheet. Abstract The results of the Promiks-1 experiment to investigate the mass and energetic properties of the magnetospheric plasma are reviewed. The experiment was carried out on board the Prognoz-7 spacecraft in the vicinity of the ring current and the high-latitude magnetospheric boundary. A few examples of prolonged (up to 10 h in duration) steady magnetospheric convection (SMC) are studied here. The plasma and magnetic field measurements on board the ISEE-1 spacecraft (at X ≈ −20 R E near its apogee) displayed the stable plasma sheet (PS) configuration and steady earthward plasma convection that are essential elements of SMC by: Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

    3 Magnetospheric simulation and prediction of the plasma environment Real-time magnetospheric simulation NICT is conducting magnetospheric simu-lation in real time by using the calculative approach of three-dimensional magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD)[5][6]. Figure 1 . The plasma magnet consists of a pair of polyphase coils that produce a rotating magnetic field (RMF) that drives the necessary currents in the plasma to inflate and maintain the large-scale magnetic structure. The plasma magnet is deployed by the Lorentz self-force on the plasma currents, expanding outward in a disk-like shape until theFile Size: 2MB. Plasma pressure data from the ISEE 2 fast plasma experiment (FPE) were statistically analyzed to determine the plasma sheet pressure versus distance in the midnight local time sector of the near-earth (12–35 RE) magnetotail plasma sheet. The observed plasma pressure, assumed isotropic, was mapped along model magnetic field flux tubes (obtained from the Tsyganenko and Usmanov [] model) to Cited by: Abstract.- 1 Introduction.- 2 Outline.- 3 Two Problems of Coupled Spatial Transport and Pitch Angle Diffusion.- Radiation Belt Diffusion and Loss.- The Diffuse Aurora.- 4 General Properties of Electrostatic Waves in a Magnetized Plasma.- Linear Dispersion Relation.- Separable Distribution Functions.- Electrostatic Waves in a Zero Temperature Plasma.- Bernstein .

    Plasma populations throughout the universe interact with solid bodies, gases, magnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, magnetohydrodynamic waves, shock waves, and other plasma populations. These interactions can occur locally as well as on very large . ADS Classic is now deprecated.

Mini-Magnetospheric Plasma Propulsion (M2P2) is an advanced plasma propulsion system that will enable spacecraft to attain unprecedented speeds, with minimal energy and mass requirements. The high efficiency and specific impulse attained by the system is due to its utilization of ambient energy, in this case the energy from the solar wind, to. Understanding of the plasma depletion process in the dayside magnetosheath, the nature of magnetotail boundary motion, and the geometry of the magnetospheric.

The ISEE project has made substantial contributions to the knowledge of the magnetosphere during the period of the IMS, especially in the discipline of Space Plasma Physics.

Results obtained during approximately the first two years of the operation of ISEE-1 and -2, and touches on relevant results of ISEE-3 are : K.

A series of recent measurements of the outflow of ionization from the ionosphere have further heightened our awareness of the strength of the ionospheric source of magnetospheric plasmas.

In December the study project on 'Source and Loss Processes of Magnetospheric Plasma' was se­ lected by ISSI after consultations with several groups of senior representatives of the space physics community.

This book provides a broad introduction to the kinetic theory of space plasma physics with the major focus on the inner magnetospheric plasma. It is designed to provide a comprehensive description of the different kinds of transport equations for both plasma particles and waves with an emphasis on the applicability and limitations of each set.

Margaret Galland Kivelson, Fran Bagenal, in Encyclopedia of the Solar System (Second Edition), Sources of Magnetospheric Plasmas. Magnetospheres contain considerable amounts of plasma, electrically charged particles in equal proportions of positive charge on ions and negative charge on electrons, from various sources.

The main source of plasma in the solar system is the Sun. This book addresses the electrical coupling between the hot, but dilute, magnetospheric plasma and the cold, but dense, plasma in the ionosphere.

In five major chapters, this book presents: basic properties of magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling; - morphology of electric fields and currents at high latitudes; - global modeling of magnetosphere. of magnetospheric structure, and is de-signed to make a large contribution to the International Magnetospheric Study (5).

Like-wise, magnetospheric particles can escape along field lines.

This two-way transfer across the magnetopause continues while the flux tube convects tailward with the external plasma flow.
