    Earth's magnetospheric plasma is largely populated by ions captured from the solar wind, whereas Saturn's plasma comes predominantly from water vapor that spews from massive geysers on the southern end of its icy moon Enceladus. In order to represent the physics of this region in a fully self-consistent fashion, the effects of the magnetospheric plasma on the magnetic field must also be included. To this end, we have developed a plasma equilibrium model (the RCM-Equilibrium, or RCM-E) that computes a self-consistent magnetic field in response to the plasma pressure. Within the magnetosphere, these particles are energized, transported, and eventually lost to the Earth’s upper atmosphere or to interplanetary space. The Department’s research in magnetosphere physics focuses on evaluating and understanding the processes responsible for this energization, transport, and loss, using a combination of.   This is an account of early research on the Earth's distant magnetic environment, work that led to magnetospheric physics and to space plasma physics. It tells of a science in its earliest, most primitive stage, when explanations were qualitative and full of speculation. The early stage lasted here a long time, because remote sensing of the.

This monograph is a product of this conference, a compilation of thirty-nine articles assembled into seven chapters: (1) multiscale features in complexity dynamics, (2) space storms, (3) magnetospheric substorms, (4) turbulence and magnetic reconnection, (5) modeling and coupling of space phenomena, (6) techniques for multiscale space plasma.

The paper considers a method, based on the oscillating-dipole model, for determining the conductivity of the magnetospheric plasma in flux tubes disturbed by intense field-aligned currents. The presence of bistructures pulsating in counterphase, assumed by the proposed model, is confirmed by video data obtained at the Polar Geophysical Institute.
