    • Optimization of Models 

      Connors, Martin (University of Alberta, 1998)
      The parameters of model auroral current systems were described in the previous chapter. To model the currents at any given time, these parameters must be adjusted to provide an optimal match to the available observations. ...
    • Physical Processes 

      Connors, Martin (1998)
      Physical processes in near-Earth space with attention to ground and satellite magnetic fields.
    • Introduction 

      Connors, Martin (1998)
      Introduction on solar-terrestrial interaction.
    • Data Preparation 

      Connors, Martin (1998)
      Aspects of space physics data available and how to prepare it for treatment in analysis.
    • Interpretation of Automated Forward Modeling Parameters for Sawtooth Events and Substorms 

      Connors, Martin; McPherron, Robert L.; Clauer, C. Robert (International Conference on Substorms 8, 2006)
      Automated Forward Modeling (AFM) is an inversion technique based on magnetic data alone, which can indicate physical parameters associated with electrojets. From perturbations along a meridian, the total electric current ...
    • Electrodynamic Parameters of the Auroral Oval from Combined Spacecraft and Ground Measurements 

      Connors, Martin (European Space Agency, 2006)
      Spacecraft traversing the auroral oval respond primarily to the field-aligned currents at its poleward and equatorward borders that are part of a solenoidal current system. If electric and magnetic field measurements are ...
    • 2001-2002 Image SI12 - Canopus events 

      Connors, Martin (2006-05-17)
      SI12 events in winters 2001 and 2002 selected to have invertable Canopus magnetic data and accompanied by optical data
    • STEP Forward 2007-2007 Space Science Enhancement Proposal to CSA 

      Connors, Martin (2006-05-19)
      The most effective way to exploit Canada’s ideal position for auroral zone science is to emplace instruments with sufficient density for meaningful studies. Magnetometers are useful instruments for this since their cost ...
    • A Survey of Orbits of Co-Orbitals of Jupiter (Poster) 

      Stacey, R. Greg; Connors, Martin; Brasser, Ramon (2006-05-25)
      Co- Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids fulfill the prediction of Lagrange that orbits can be stable when a small body orbits in specific locations relative to its ‘parent’ planet and the Sun. The first such Trojan was discovered ...
    • Co-orbitals CASCA Talk 

      Connors, Martin; Veillet, Christian; Stacey, R. Greg; Brasser, Ramon; Wiegert, Paul; Innanen, Kimmo A. (2006-06)
      Presentation from CASCA 2006 covering general aspects of co-orbital motion with emphasis on the fact that they would be good targets for space missions.
    • CASCA Main Presentation 2006 

      Connors, Martin; Veillet, Christian; Stacey, R. Greg; Brasser, Ramon; Wiegert, Paul; Innanen, Kimmo A. (2006-06)
      Presentation about stability of quasi-satellites, no movies.
    • CASCA 2006 Calgary AU Attendees 

      Connors, Martin (2006-06-16)
      Photos showing AU attendees at CASCA 2006, held in Calgary in early June 2006.
    • A Survey of Orbits of Co-orbitals of Jupiter 

      Stacey, R. Greg; Connors, Martin; Brasser, Ramon (2006-06-29)
      Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids fulfill the prediction of Lagrange that orbits can be stable when a small body orbits in specific locations relative to its ‘parent’ planet and the Sun. The first such Trojan asteroid was discovered ...
    • linfit code 

      Connors, Martin (2006-07-05)
      Linear fit to an arbitrarily long 2-column dataset.
    • Physical Parameters of Substorms from Automated Forward Modeling 

      Connors, Martin; Ponto, Jason; McPherron, Robert L. (2006-07-08)
      AFM technique applied to give average parameters of substorms and relation to AL index, Weimer parametrization, optical data
    • DE Pictures 

      McMullin, Blaise (2006-07-10)
      Photos of remote labs and DE student.
    • Noctilucent Cloud Videos, Jun 23 2006 

      Shelton, Ian; Dalin, Peter; Connors, Martin; Zalcik, Mark (2006-07-23)
      Videos of noctilucent clouds (NLC) seen from Athabasca University Geophysical Observatory on June 23 2006. NLC are mesospheric clouds which are very high and lit up by the sun despite it being well below the horizon at the ...
    • A Centenary Survey of Orbits of Co-Orbitals of Jupiter 

      Connors, Martin; Stacey, R. Greg (2006-08-10)
      Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids fulfill the prediction of Lagrange that orbits can be stable when a small body orbits in specific locations relative to its ‘parent’ planet and the Sun. The first such Trojan asteroid was discovered ...
    • Inner solar system dynamical analogs for plutinos 

      Connors, Martin; Stacey, R. Greg; Brasser, Ramon; Wiegert, Paul (2006-08-18)
      By studying orbits of near-Earth asteroids potentially in 2:3 mean motion resonance with Earth, Venus, and Mars, we have found plutino analogs. We identify 23 objects in the inner solar system dynamically protected from ...
    • An Online Mechanics Experiment 

      Connors, Martin; Bredeson, Christy (2006-09-30)
      Physics distance education has grown rapidly in recent years. The theory part of a physics course taught in this way has much common ground with other courses. However, lab instruction is an important part of introductory ...
