  1. 1. Magnetic Reconnection in Space Plasmas : Cluster Spacecraft Observations

    Författare :Alessandro Retinò; Mats André; Andris Vaivads; Bengt U. Ö. Sonnerup; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Space and plasma physics; space physics; plasma astrophysics; plasma physics; transport processes; boundary layers; magnetic reconnection; turbulence; particle acceleration; solar system; magnetospheres; Rymd- och plasmafysik;

    Sammanfattning : Magnetic reconnection is a universal process occurring at boundaries between magnetized plasmas, where changes in the topology of the magnetic field lead to the transport of charged particles across the boundaries and to the conversion of electromagnetic energy into kinetic and thermal energy of the particles. Reconnection occurs in laboratory plasmas, in solar system plasmas and it is considered to play a key role in many other space environments such as magnetized stars and accretion disks around stars and planets under formation.

  2. 2. Electrostatic plasma waves associated with collisionless magnetic reconnection : Spacecraft observations

    Författare :Konrad Steinvall; Yuri Khotyaintsev; Daniel Graham; Andris Vaivads; Jonathan Rae; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Magnetic reconnection; Plasma waves; Electron holes; Solar wind; Magnetosphere; Magnetospheric Multiscale; Solar Orbiter; Fysik med inriktning mot rymd- och plasmafysik; Physics with specialization in Space and Plasma Physics;

    Sammanfattning : Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental plasma process where changes in magnetic field topology result in explosive energy conversion, plasma mixing, heating, and energization. In geospace, magnetic reconnection couples the Earth’s magnetosphere to the solar wind plasma, enabling plasma transport across the magnetopause. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Electron-scale physics in space plasma : Thin boundaries and magnetic reconnection

    Författare :Cecilia Norgren; Mats André; Jonathan Eastwood; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Most of the observable Universe consists of plasma, a kind of ionized gas that interacts with electric and magnetic fields. Large volumes of space are filled with relatively uniform plasmas that convect with the magnetic field. LÄS MER

  4. 4. 3D Magnetic Nulls and Regions of Strong Current in the Earth's Magnetosphere

    Författare :Elin Eriksson; Andris Vaivads; Hans Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Magnetic Nulls; Particle Acceleration; Current sheets; Magnetic reconnection; Magnetosphere; Fysik med inriktning mot rymd- och plasmafysik; Physics with specialization in Space and Plasma Physics;

    Sammanfattning : Plasma, a gas of charged particles exhibiting collective behaviour, can be found everywhere in our vast Universe. The characteristics of plasma in very distant parts of the Universe can be similar to characteristics in our solar system and near-Earth space. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Energy Transfer and Conversion in the Magnetosphere-Ionosphere System

    Författare :Lisa Rosenqvist; Stephan Buchert; Andris Vaivads; Mike Lockwood; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Space and plasma physics; solar system; space physics; magnetospheric physics; plasma physics; magnetic storms; substorms; boundary layers; magnetic reconnection; energy conversion; space weather; Rymd- och plasmafysik;

    Sammanfattning : Magnetized planets, such as Earth, are strongly influenced by the solar wind. The Sun is very dynamic, releasing varying amounts of energy, resulting in a fluctuating energy and momentum exchange between the solar wind and planetary magnetospheres. LÄS MER
