Special Space Physics Seminar in 435 Tate Lab of Physics
Speaker: Lois Sarno-Smith, University of Michigan
Subject: High Energy" Ion depletion in the Post-Midnight Plasmasphere - Using the Van Allen Probes Satellite Suite to Uncover Mysteries of the Inner Magnetosphere

Using the Helium Oxygen Proton Electron (HOPE) instrument, Electric Fields and Waves (EFW), and the Electric and Magnetic Field Instrument Suite (EMFISIS) instruments, we examine how combining multiple instruments that characterize plasma can enable us to under how the 1-10 eV ion population, where the bulk of the plasmasphere lies, experiences strong local time asymmetry.
