STEP Forward 2007-2007 Space Science Enhancement Proposal to CSA
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 ...
Electrodynamic Parameters of the Auroral Oval from Combined Spacecraft and Ground Measurements
(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 ...

A Centenary Survey of Orbits of Co-Orbitals of Jupiter
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 ...
CASCA 2006 Calgary AU Attendees
Photos showing AU attendees at CASCA 2006, held in Calgary in early June 2006.
Progress on Low-Cost Pulse-Counting Magnetometers for Geomagnetic Studies
"what the world needs now is a good $500 magnetometer"
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.
Interpretation of Automated Forward Modeling Parameters for Sawtooth Events and Substorms
(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 ...
Linear fit to an arbitrarily long 2-column dataset.
Noctilucent Cloud Videos, Jun 23 2006
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 ...
