Onsets and Flapping Studied Using a Dynamic Harris Sheet Model
We have developed a nonlinear fitting routine for the Harris current sheet based on magnetic data, and applied it to 71 plasma sheet crossings by Cluster. In most cases this simple fit appeared to represent the magnetic ...

Progress on Low-Cost Pulse-Counting Magnetometers for Geomagnetic Studies
"what the world needs now is a good $500 magnetometer"
A One-meter Robotic Telescope for Western Canada
1-m class telescopes are arguably the workhorses of modern astronomy and represent an excellent return of science for a relatively modest capital investment. Such instruments can be used in large-field survey work, ...

Inner solar system dynamical analogs for plutinos
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
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 ...
