Global hybrid simulation of mode conversion at the dayside magnetopause

Feng Shi, Yu Lin & Xueyi Wang
Mode conversion at the magnetopause has been suggested to lead to the generation of kinetic Alfven waves (KAWs) and effective mass transport from the solar wind into the magnetosphere. To investigate the mode conversion process in the dynamic dayside system, a 3D global hybrid simulation associated with a quasiparallel shock under a radial interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) is carried out, in which the foreshock compressional pulses are selfconsistently generated by the interaction between the solar...
