Effects of varying magnetosheath flow and dissipation on the two-dimensional reconnection structure at the magnetopause
2009 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

In this Master's thesis the effect of magnetic reconnection at the magnetopause is investigated while considering non-ideal effects such as resistivity and viscosity. The analysis is conducted at the dayside magnetopause, but off the subsolar point resulting in a non-zero magnetosheath flow influencing the flow structure. Also a velocity gradient is introduced affecting the structure further. It is shown the the structure of the magnetic field and streamlines are dramatically changed from the symmetric ideal case.
