Researchers use satellite data to characterize the physical properties of the lunar wake and the processes that govern it.
What Causes Broadband Electrostatic Noise in Space?
Factors that generate electrostatic noise involve how electric fields compress magnetized plasmas.
Trapping Waves in Earth's Plasmasphere
Satellite observations explain why magnetosonic waves can be found in regions far from where they originate.
Measuring Solar Wind Interactions in Mars’s Exosphere
An updated analytical technique gave researchers a new look at ion cyclotron waves in Mars’s extended hydrogen exosphere.
Model of Earth's Plasmasphere Is Incompatible with Measurements
Researchers find that a model of the Earth’s plasmasphere developed in the 1960s is outdated and inaccurate.
