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 ...
CASCA 2006 Calgary AU Attendees
Photos showing AU attendees at CASCA 2006, held in Calgary in early June 2006.
Physical processes in near-Earth space with attention to ground and satellite magnetic fields.
Introduction on solar-terrestrial interaction.
Aspects of space physics data available and how to prepare it for treatment in analysis.
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 ...
ASTR 210 Natural Sky Draft Cover

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"
