Bifurcation of drift shells near the dayside magnetopause
(AMER GEOPHYSICAL UNION, 2007-07-10)
Close to the dayside magnetopause, there is a region of space where each field line has two magnetic field minima, one near each cusp. That region is located around local noon, and extends about 1-2 R-e from the magnetopause. ...
Numerical calculations of relativistic electron drift loss effect
(AMER GEOPHYSICAL UNION, 2008-09-09)
It has been suggested that drift loss to the magnetopause can be one of the major loss mechanisms contributing to relativistic electron flux dropouts. In this study, we examine details of relativistic electrons' drift ...
