Performance of Akatsuki/IR2 in Venus orbit: the first year

It is essential for instruments, that work in space or at or near the target bodies, to be characterized under the actual operating conditions. Establishing the procedure of data processing is important as well. IR2, which cools its sensor and optics by a cryo-cooler, is affected in particular by thermal environment in the orbit. Satoh et al. (2017) made efforts to produce the data with best possible quality by understanding… Read more

Near-Earth plasma sheet boundary dynamics during substorm dipolarization

Nakamura et al. (2017) report on the evolution of the near-Earth plasma sheet boundary during an intense substorm. Based on multi-point analysis using the four-spacecraft measurements from Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) together with Geotail and GOES spacecraft and comparison with MHD model of the reconnection jet, spatial structure of the high-speed plasma flows and associated field-aligned current pattern are deduced. It is shown that the dynamics in the boundary region of the near-Earth plasma sheet are controlled both by the Earthward flow braking process and by the accumulated magnetic flux due to near-Earth reconnection evolving tailward.
