  • Characteristics of the flank magnetopause: Cluster observations 

    Haaland, Stein; Reistad, Jone Peter; Tenfjord, Paul; Gjerloev, Jesper W.; Maes, Lukas; deKeyser, Johan; Maggiolo, Romain; Anekallu, Chrandrasehkar; Dorville, Nicolas (WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2014-11)
    The magnetopause is a current sheet forming the boundary between the geomagnetic field on one side and the shocked solar wind on the other side. This paper discusses properties of the low-latitude dawn and dusk flanks ...

  • Cluster observations of a field aligned current at the dawn flank of a bursty bulk flow 

    Snekvik, Kristian; Haaland, Stein; Østgaard, Nikolai; Hasegawa, H.; Nakamura, R.; Takada, T.; Juusola, L.; Amm, O.; Pitout, F.; Rème, H.; Klecker, B.; Lucek, E. A. (European Geosciences Union, 2007-06-29)
    This article describes observations of a bursty bulk flow (BBF) in the outer central plasma sheet. The observations are made with the Cluster satellites, located approximately 19RE downtail, close to the midnight sector ...

  • The Hall current system revealed as a statistical significant pattern during fast flows 

    Snekvik, Kristian; Nakamura, R.; Østgaard, Nikolai; Haaland, Stein; Retinò, A. (European Geosciences Union, 2008-11-05)
    We have examined the dawn-dusk component of the magnetic field, BY , in the night side current sheet during fast flows in the neutral sheet. 237 h of Cluster data from the plasma sheet between 2 August 2002 and 2 October ...
