Optimization of Models
(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. ...
Automated Regional Modelling (ARM) for characterization of the substorm current wedge
Some characteristics of substorms may be determined through use of an electrojet forward modelling approach. These include the amplitude of cross-meridian electric current (0.2 to 1 MA typically), timescales (about 20 ...
Athabasca University Initiatives Supporting THEMIS
Since the installation of a UCLA ‘small’ magnetometer in 1998, Athabasca University has made great strides in installing infrastructure in Canada for space science, culminating with the recent expansion of Athabasca ...

AUGO recorded the space weather event of Apr. 5 2010
An Evening Sector Ps 6 - Omega Band Event
Abstract. Ps 6 magnetic disturbances and associated optical forms known as omega bands are usually associated with the morning sector. Some evidence for similar phenomenology in the evening sector has been presented ...
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 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 ...
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 ...
