Experimental Identification of Plasma Wave Modes

PI Heidi Nykyri

Project uses MMS data to identify plasma wave modes contributing  to the heating of the magnetospheric boundary layer

Projects uses single and multi-spacecraft data-analysis techniques to experimentally identify various plasma modes at different frequencies and assess their contribution to plasma heating
