LASP Magnetosphere Seminars (FOM)

2016 Seminar Schedule

Below is a schedule of the informal LASP Friends of the Magnetosphere (FOM) Seminars for the Spring 2016 semester. LASP holds a series of informal seminars focused on space physics and plasma research relating to the magnetospheres of Earth and other planets. The intended audience is space and planetary physics researchers in the Boulder area, although in most instances any interested persons are welcome to attend. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Frederick.Wilder at

Mar 15, 2016 – Van Allen Probes observations of oxygen cyclotron harmonic waves in the inner magnetosphere

Speaker:   Maria Usanova (LASP/CU)
Date & Time:   Mar 15, 2016 ,  4:00 PM Location: LASP Space Science Building, room N100 (first floor)

Waves with frequencies in the vicinity of the oxygen cyclotron frequency and its harmonics have been observed on the Van Allen Probes in the inner equatorial magnetosphere during strong geomagnetic storms. We will focus on the properties of these waves and present observations from the main phase of two geomagnetic storms on November 1, 2012 […]
