Tom Elsden (St Andrews): 3D Alfven Resonances in Earth's Magnetosphere

- Export as iCalendar
Location: PS128

Low frequency periodic perturbations to the Earth's background magnetic field, known as ultra low frequency (ULF) waves, have been observed on the ground and in space for many decades. With a large scale length and low frequency, these waves can be effectively studied using magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). In this talk I'll discuss some of our recent numerical work on the resonant coupling of two MHD wave modes, namely fast-Alfven wave coupling, and put this in context in terms of waves in Earth's magnetosphere. I'll do my best to introduce all of the magnetospheric terminology and will also hopefully spark some interest about how the 3D nature of Alfven resonances could be important for waves in the solar corona.

UKRI Deadlines

Due to the implementation of a new UKRI funding system (TFS) there will be a fixed quarterly deadlines for some grants which would previously have been on open calls, this is to allow necessary system amendments and updates.

The first deadline after implementation will be 28th September 2023 and applies to those calls listed below:

EPSRC New Investigator Award

EPSRC Network Grant

EPSRC Post Doctoral Fellowship

EPSRC Open Fellowship

EPSRC Open Plus Fellowship

EPSRC Working with overseas scientists

EPSRC Standard research grant

EPSRC Discipline hopping in ICT
