Simultaneous Interaction of ULF Waves with Different Ring Current Ions

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Ions in the energy range of 10–100s keV are the main carriers of ring current (Williams in Planet Space Sci 29(11):1195–1203, 1981, [9]), (Williams in Space Sci Rev 34(3):223–234, 1983, [10]), (Williams in Space Sci Rev 42(3–4):375–396, 1985, [11].
