Global-scale hybrid simulation of dayside magnetic reconnection under southward IMF: Structure and evolution of reconnection
Magnetopause reconnection is investigated with our 3-D self-consistent global hybrid simulation model. The magnetic configuration and evolution of Flux Transfer Events (FTEs) and the associated ion density and ion velocity ...
Three-dimensional global hybrid simulation of dayside dynamics associated with the quasi-parallel bow shock
A three-dimensional global-scale hybrid simulation is carried out, for the first time, for dynamics of the dayside bow shock-magnetosphere system associated with the quasi-parallel bow shock. A case with IMF along the ...
Global-scale hybrid simulation of cusp precipitating ions associated with magnetopause reconnection under southward IMF
With a 3-D global-scale hybrid simulation model, we investigate the energy spectra of cusp precipitating ions and issues associated with magnetopause reconnection under a southward IMF. Both the spatial and temporal energy ...
Magnetic flux rope formation within a magnetosheath hot flow anomaly
We report observations on 1 March 2004 by the Cluster spacecraft of a hot flow anomaly (HFA) encountered in the dayside magnetosheath near Earth's bow shock. Embedded within the HFA was a magnetic flux rope with a diameter ...
Magnetic field rotation and transition width in rotational discontinuities and Alfven wave trains
A hybrid simulation is carried out to study the evolution of magnetic field rotations in rotational discontinuities (RDs) and large-amplitude Alfven wave trains (AWTs) whose initial field rotation angle \Delta Phi\ > 180 ...
