      Khotyaintsev, Yuri V.; Graham, Daniel B.; Steinvall, Konrad; Alm, Love; Vaivads, Andris; Johlander, Andreas; Norgren, Astrid Elisabet Cecilia; Li, Wenya; Divin, Andrey; Fu, Huishan; Hwang, Kyoung-Joo; Burch, James L; Ahmadi, Narges; Le Contel, Olivier; Gershman, Daniel J; Russell, Christopher T.; Torbert, R. B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      We report electrostatic Debye-scale turbulence developing within the diffusion region of asymmetric magnetopause reconnection with a moderate guide field using observations by the Magnetospheric Multiscale mission. We show ...
    • Electron inflow velocities and reconnection rates at earth's magnetopause and magnetosheath

      Chen, Li-Jen; Wang, Shan; Le Contel, Olivier; Rager, A.; Hesse, Michael; Drake, J. F.; Dorelli, J.; Ng, J.; Bessho, Naoki; Graham, D. B.; Wilson, Lynn B.; Moore, T. E.; Giles, B. L.; Paterson, W.; Lavraud, B.; Genestreti, K.; Nakamura, Rumi; Khotyaintsev, Yuri V.; Ergun, R.E.; Torbert, Roy B.; Burch, J. L.; Pollock, C.; Russell, Christopher T.; Lindqvist, Per-Arne; Avanov, Levon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      We report measurements of lower-hybrid drift waves driving electron heating and vortical flows in an electron-scale reconnection layer under a guide field. Electrons accelerated by the electrostatic potential of the waves ...
    • Observational Evidence of Magnetic Reconnection in the Terrestrial Bow Shock Transition Region 

      Wang, Shan; Chen, Li-Jen; Bessho, Naoki; Hesse, Michael; Wilson, Lynn B.; Giles, Barbara; Moore, Thomas E.; Russell, Christopher T.; Torbert, Roy B.; Burch, James L. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      We report evidence of magnetic reconnection in the transition region of the Earth's bow shock when the angle between the shock normal and the immediate upstream magnetic field is 65°. An ion‐skin‐depth‐scale current sheet ...
