Data underlying the publication: Turbulent-driven magnetic reconnection in the magnetosheath downstream of a quasi-parallel shock: three-dimensional global hybrid simulation

Huanyu Wang
By performing a three-dimensional (3-D) global hybrid simulation, we investigated the characteristics of the quasi-parallel magnetosheath of the terrestrial bow shock, which is formed due to the interaction of the solar wind with the earth’s magnetosphere. Current sheets with widths several of ion inertial lengths are found to be produced in the magnetosheath after the upstream large amplitude electromagnetic waves penetrate the shock and are then compressed in the downstream. Magnetic reconnection consequently occurs in...
