Research Projects:
Investigations of ULF Structure in the Magnetosphere

Project Summary
Shear Power Spectral Density Animated Summary: Shear Waves (avi, 9.2M)  Simulation showing the development of tailward-propagating shear waves along the magnetopause in an MHD simulation driven by a constant solar wind of velocity 600 km/s (contours = constant magnetic field strength; color scale = azimuthal electric field).
Impulsive Power Spectral Density Animated Summary: Pressure Variations (avi, 9.2M)  Simulation showing the effect of a 3 mHz, 10% density perturbation superposed on a 600 km/s solar wind.
