Collisionless shock structure and multipoint measurements Conference Paper uri icon


  • Abstract Collisionless shock structure has been studied theoretically numerically and observationally for about forty years Much has been understood from analysis of single spacecraft measurements and subsequent analytical developments Some features related to particle energization inside the shock transition layer are still begin studied and wait for their explanation Since the particle behavior crucially depends on the fine structure of the shock front knowledge of the relevant scales and time-dependence remains the important …
