Space Physics: Aurora Borealis
Cluster data was used to examine the magnetospheric boundary and more particularly the tail. Harris sheet fits were done in a dynamic fashion that allows flapping to be quantified.
AFM - Prospectus
Automated Forward Modelling is explained and examined.
May 25, 2007 Meteor
(Please contact Martin Connors for more information: email@example.com, 2007-05-31)
The file shows a view of the whole sky on Friday May 25 at 1:07:20 am with data from 1:07:24 superposed. This shows the meteor track in the southern sky, inside the box near the bottom along with the start point just ...
ASTR 210 Natural Sky Draft Cover
Night sky at Athabasca with Athabasca University Robotic Telescope in foreground.
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 ...

Inner solar system dynamical analogs of plutinos
By studying orbits of asteroids potentially in 3:2 exterior mean motion resonance with Earth, Venus, and Mars, we have found plutino analogs. We identify at least 27 objects in the inner solar system dynamically protected ...
Simultaneous ground and satellite observations of an isolated proton arc at subauroral latitudes
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 2007)
We observed an isolated proton arc at the Athabasca station MLAT: 62◦N) in Canada on 5 September, 2005, using a ground-based allsky imager at wavelengths of 557.7 nm, 630.0 nm, and 486.1 nm (Hβ). This arc is similar to ...
Time Evolution of the Substorm Current Wedge from Ground and Space-based Magnetic Fields
Over the past several years, intensive efforts have resulted in a significant improvement in the ground instrumentation for auroral studies in North America. A major part of this is due to the THEMIS ground program, both ...
