Waves on the magnetopause

Waves on the magnetopause

This animation illustrates waves on the magnetopause - the outer limit of Earth's magnetic field. As a wave travels along the magnetopause it passes over some or all of the Cluster spacecraft. By combining information from each of the four spacecraft scientists can reconstruct the motion of the waves.
