VLF emissions, observed in satellites orbiting above the ionosphere, have their origin in the energetic particle fluxes as well as in terrestrial thunderstorms (whistlers). Manmade signals from terrestrial VLF transmitters are also detected. Their study throws light on the important role of wave-particle interactions in the dynamics of the magnetosphere and they can be useful as a diagnostic tool for the study of magnetospheric structure, especially in the vicinity of the plasmapause.
