  • Coupling of the solar wind, magnetosphere and ionosphere by MHD waves 

    Russell, Alexander J. B. (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
    The solar wind, magnetosphere and ionosphere are coupled by magnetohydrodynamic waves, and this gives rise to new and often unexpected behaviours that cannot be produced by a single, isolated part of the system. This ...
  • Ionization in atmospheres of brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets. IV. The effect of cosmic rays 

    Rimmer, Paul; Helling, Christiane (2013-08-21) - Journal article
    Cosmic rays provide an important source for free electrons in Earth's atmosphere and also in dense interstellar regions where they produce a prevailing background ionization. We utilize a Monte Carlo cosmic ray transport ...
  • The transterminator ion flow at Venus at solar minimum 

    Wood, A. G.; Pryse, S. E.; Grande, M.; Whittaker, I. C.; Coates, A. J.; Husband, K.; Baumjohann, W.; Zhang, T. L.; Mazelle, C.; Kallio, E.; Fraenz, M.; McKenna-Lawlor, S.; Wurz, P. (2012-12) - Journal article
    The transterminator ion flow in the Venusian ionosphere is observed at solar minimum for the first time. Such a flow, which transports ions from the day to the nightside, has been observed previously around solar maximum. ...
