An ionospheric signature of possible enhanced magnetic field merging on the dayside magnetopause

first_imgIdentifying the causative mechanisms at the magnetopause that produce a variety of transient plasma velocity signatures in the high latitude ionosphere is difficult. Correct identification is of fundamental importance in determining how solar wind energy is coupled to the magnetosphere. Observations in conjugate hemispheres offer the chance to distinguish between events triggered by merging and those initiated by solar wind pressure variations, if the direction of travel of the ionospheric signatures can be determined. Using data from two conjugate H F radars, high temporal resolution measurements of the F-region plasma convection in the vicinity of the cusp are presented for 22 April 1988. In a previous study of this dataset [Greenwaldet al., 1990. J. geophys. Res.95, 8057], the authors identified a particular region of the cusp ionosphere as being the footprint of the antiparallel merging line on the magnetopause. Following an enhancement in the Interplanetary Magnetic Field’s (IMF) southward component the inferred ionospheric footprint of the magnetopause merging line moved equatorward for 20 min. In this period, two poleward-directed bursts of high plasma velocities (~2000 m/s) were observed in the southern hemisphere, occurring close to the ionospheric footprint of the merging line, with a weaker (~ 1000 m/s) response in the northern hemisphere. Poleward-directed flow at lower latitudes, crossing the inferred polar cap boundary, was also observed. We interpret the flow bursts as a signature of an event driven by magnetic merging at the magnetopause, primarily because the motion of the flow burst features in each hemisphere was conditioned by the prevailing east-west component of the IMF. The azimuthal variation of the radar’s line-of-sight velocities may be interpreted as showing the presence of vortices which is consistent with theoretical models advanced for the ionospheric signature of patchy reconnection. However, the presence of vortices was not detected by the radar until at least 3 min after the onset of the poleward flow burst. The hemispherical differences in the plasma velocities of the flow burst events may be explained in terms of the differences in the mapping of the magnetopause merging lines to the conjugate hemispheres.last_img read more

Ming confirms Radical shipping

first_img– compliments of A&R Jiwanram Printery, Hand-in-Hand, John Fernandes Limited, Rent-a-Tent, Universal Solutions, Jiffy Lubes, Best Buy AutoGUYANESE businessman Stanley Ming has confirmed that two of the three Suzuki Radicals expected to be shipped to Guyana within the month are his while the third Radical belongs to Mark Vieira.Speaking to Chronicle Sport yesterday, the businessman, whose son races in the Barbadian SR3 series, confirmed that he has requested his Radicals be shipped to Guyana for a demonstration at the South Dakota Circuit.He also confirmed that he is in talks to with the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) to have the demonstrations coincide with the final leg of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship in Guyana.Meanwhile. he explained that the idea behind bringing his two Radicals here is to introduce the Guyanese public to single make series. Ming confirmed that he is the stakeholder currently pushing the demonstration idea here.There are currently three Guyanese participating in the Barbadian series – Ming’s son Calvin, Mark and Kristian Jeffrey, all of whom took part in the series last weekend in Barbados.Meanwhile sources have indicated that Kristian Jeffrey is also planning to have his Radical shipped out of Barbados as well with the likely destination being England. However, neither Kristian nor his father Kevin was available for comment yesterday as they are out of the country.last_img read more
