      Burch, James L.; Webster, James M.; Hesse, Michael; Genestreti, Kevin J.; Denton, Richard E.; Phan, Tai D.; Hasegawa, Hiroshi; Cassak, Paul A.; Torbert, Roy B.; Giles, Barbara L.; Gershman, Daniel J.; Ergun, Robert E.; Russell, Christopher T.; Strangeway, Robert J.; Le Contel, Olivier; Pritchard, Kris R.; Marshall, Andrew T.; Hwang, Kyoung-Joo; Dokgo, Kyunghwan; Fuselier, Stephen A.; Chen, Li-Jen; Wang, Shan; Swisdak, Marc; Drake, James F.; Argall, Matthew R.; Trattner, Karlheinz J.; Yamada, Masaaki; Paschmann, Götz (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Electron inflow and outflow velocities during magnetic reconnection at and near the dayside magnetopause are measured using satellites from NASA's Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission. A case study is examined in detail, ...
    • High‐density magnetospheric He+ at the dayside magnetopause and its effect on magnetic reconnection 

      Fuselier, Stephen A.; Haaland, Stein; Tenfjord, Paul; Paschmann, G; Toledo-Redondo, S; Malaspina, D; Kim, M.J.; Trattner, K.J.; Petrinec, S. M.; Giles, B. L.; Goldstein, J; Burch, J. L.; Strangeway, R. J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Observations from the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission are used to quantify the maximum effect of magnetospheric H+ and He+ on dayside magnetopause reconnection. A data base of current-sheet crossings from the first ...
    • MMS Observations of Multiscale Hall Physics in the Magnetotail 

      Alm, Love; André, Mats; Graham, Daniel B.; Khotyaintsev, Yuri V.; Vaivads, Andris; Chappell, Charles Richard; Dargent, Jérémy; Fuselier, Stephen A.; Haaland, Stein; Lavraud, Benoit; Li, Wenya; Tenfjord, Paul; Toledo-Redondo, Sergio; Vines, Sarah K. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      We present Magnetospheric Multiscale mission (MMS) observations of Hall physics in the magnetotail, which compared to dayside Hall physics is a relatively unexplored topic. The plasma consists of electrons, moderately cold ...
    • Solar Wind—Magnetosphere Coupling During Radial Interplanetary Magnetic Field Conditions: Simultaneous Multi-Point Observations 

      Toledo-Redondo, Sergio; Hwang, Kyoung-Joo; Escoubet, C. P.; Lavraud, Benoit; Fornieles, J.; Aunai, N.; Fear, R.C.; Dargent, J.; Fu, Huishan; Fuselier, Stephen A.; Genestreti, K.J.; Khotyaintsev, Yuri V.; Li, Wenya; Norgren, Astrid Elisabet Cecilia; Phan, Tai D. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      In-situ spacecraft missions are powerful assets to study processes that occur in space plasmas. One of their main limitations, however, is extrapolating such local measurements to the global scales of the system. To overcome ...
