When plasma particle velocity distributions have multiple, distinct parts, treating each as a separate beam may yield more intuitive results.
Updating a model developed during the Voyager flybys will enable better mission planning and a deeper understanding of Juno data.
Solar-induced geomagnetic activity and mass strandings of whales and dolphins on shorelines both show seasonal patterns, but the beachings likely result from multiple environmental factors.
Naval radio signals may cause the formation of a barrier observed during geomagnetic storms that is seemingly impenetrable by relativistic electrons.
These waves are key to moving energy from the troposphere to the thermosphere, but until now they haven’t been well described at high altitudes in computer models.
Independent ground-based observations of the Moon confirm prior spacecraft observations that hydration at the lunar surface varies with temperature.
Hail might account for observed depletions of ammonia in the planet’s atmosphere.
Different satellite-based metrics for global vegetation coverage tell complementary, but not identical, stories.
The path of a solar eclipse through Earth’s ionosphere, which can be quite different than it is at ground level, appears to explain patterns of ionized particle depletions.
The electron density peaks well after the activity of the moon’s distinctive south polar ice plume reaches its maximum, but the cause of the lag remains puzzling.
