Our scientific interests in the Earth's magnetosphere are centred around the exploitation of magnetic field data from space missions.
Currently, we are taking part in the analysis of the magnetic field observations made by the German Equator-S spacecraft, in particular the observations made near the crossings of the magnetopause. This research work, at Imperial College, is carried out by Malcolm Dunlop and Elizabeth Lucek who are investigating the magnetopause crossings and the s pecial magnetic field and plasma structures called mirror mode waves which are found in the magnetosheath, near magnetopause crossings under certain conditions.
We are also preparing (again) for the launch of the Cluster
mission in 2000. This mission is expected to provide an unprecedented opportunity
to study magnetospheric boundaries and processes, using the four-point
measurements on Cluster.
