Relativistic Electron's Butterfly Pitch Angle Distribution Modulated by Localized Background Magnetic Field Perturbation Driven by Hot Ring Current Ions
(Amer Geophysical Union, 2017-05-21)
Dayside modulated relativistic electron's butterfly pitch angle distributions (PADs) from ~ 200 keV to 2.6 MeV were observed by Van Allen Probe B at L = 5.3 on 15 November 2013. They were associated with localized magnetic ...
Observational Evidence of the Drift-Mirror Plasma Instability in Earth's Inner Magnetosphere
We report on evidence for the generation of an ultra-low frequency plasma wave by the drift-mirror plasma instability in the dynamic plasma environment of Earth's inner magnetosphere. The plasma measurements are obtained ...
