Using 1D and 2D data sources as model constraints yields fine-scale insights into real-world aurorae.
Charged particles escape our atmosphere following Earth’s magnetic field and constitute a main source of matter that modulates Sun-Earth interactions.
Magnetic reconnection events less than 2 Jovian radii above the planet’s cloud tops could explain why Juno has yet to observe a source for Jupiter’s polar aurore.
Researchers present a new pattern-finding technique to better estimate missing data on ionospheric plasma velocities.
Over 2 decades, Cluster has shed light on the auroral acceleration region, where parallel electric fields send charged particles on a collision course with the atmosphere.
Researchers have identified a high-latitude phenomenon that looks remarkably like a tropospheric hurricane, with spinning arms of plasma and a shower of electrons.
Juno spacecraft observations provide the first global description of dawn storms in Jupiter’s aurorae, from their initiation to their end.
A layer of nickel of cosmic origin, which exists between 80 and 110 km high in Earth’s atmosphere, has been modeled for the first time, including dynamics and complex neutral and ion chemistry.
Omega-band aurora carries fast propagating electric currents in the azimuthal direction, producing geomagnetically induced currents that can cause power outage on the ground beneath.
The first Jovian off-equator Energetic Neutral Atom viewings reveal distinct emissions from Jupiter and the orbits of Io and Europa: Energetic particle injections surprisingly occur inside Io’s orbit.
