Auroral electrodynamics at high altitudes using multi-point measurements (Professor Göran Marklund)

Period: 2001-01-01

The project aims at investigating the dynamic and complex interaction processes between the solar wind and the magnetosphere-ionosphere system of Earth, driving aurora and substorms. How the aurora » more
Electrodynamics of theta aurora (Professor Lars Blomberg)

Theta aurora forms during time intervals of northward interplanetary magnetic field. The associated current system may close in the ionosphere in different ways producing either local or global » more
Penetration of plasma clouds across magnetic barriers (Professor Nils Brenning)

Period: 1998-09-01 - 2009-12-31

The injection of plasma across a magnetic field is important both in connection with fusion plasma experiments and in space physics. The possible mechanisms are also of interest for a general » more
Plasma convection in the Earth's magnetotail (Judy Cumnock Blomberg)

The magnetospheric plasma is in constant motion as a consequence of the interaction of the solar wind with the magnetosphere. In the magnetotail the plasma is normally moving from dawn to dusk. The » more
Satellite exploration of the solar wind - magnetosphere interaction region (Per-Arne Lindqvist)

  The sun continuously emits a magnetised plasma into the solar system, the solar wind, which interacts with the Earth's magnetosphere, the region of space surrounding the Earth and controlled by the » more
The transpolar potential (Professor Lars Blomberg)

Period: 2005-04-01 - 2009-09-30

As the solar wind flows past Earth a potential drop is set up across the magnetosphere. This potential drop projects into the ionosphere in the polar regions and is referred to as the transpolar » more
ULF pulsations in the Earth's magnetosphere (Professor Lars Blomberg)

Period: 2003-04-01 - 2008-03-31

The interaction of the solar wind with the Earth's magnetosphere sets up resonant oscillations (standing Alfvén waves) in the magnetospheric magnetic field. These oscillations have been studied » more
