Statistical analysis of plasma turbulence using Cluster II data

Kozak L.V., Petrenko B.A.

Abstract

The possibility of using different statistical approaches to the description of the turbulent and dynamic processes in the Earth's magnetosphere is represented. Measurements of magnetic field fluctuations during the passage by the mission Cluster-2 satellite from the solar wind to the magnetopause region are analyzed. Applicability of turbulent models to the analysis of different regions of the Earth's magnetosphere and the solar wind plasma is substantiated.

Keywords: plasma; turbulence; statistical functions; magnetosphere
