Impulsive Penetration of Solar Wind Plasma Irregularities into the Magnetosphere : Relevant Laboratory Experiments

  • J. Lemaire
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 278)


Before detailed high resolution and multi-point observations of the magnetopause region will become available in the 90’s, it is interesting to reexamine existing Controlled Laboratory Plasma Experiments which are relevant to the study of solar wind — magnetosphere interaction. Two series of such laboratory experiments have been reviewed in this article. Their application to the solar wind — magnetosphere system has been presented and discussed. But other additional laboratory experiments exist; they should also be reconsidered and possibly extended.
