Plasma and Field Parameters Measurements
Plasma and field parameters measured on Cluster spacecraft 2 during a four minute interval. The time resolution of one component of the raw electric field measured by EFW is 2.2 milliseconds (panel c). The fluxes of the electrons moving parallel (panel d) and anti-parallel (panel e) to the magnetic field were measured every 8 milliseconds by the Electron Drift Instrument.
|Panel a:||Plasma density inferred from the EFW spacecraft potential measurements|
|Panel b:||Electron energy flux integrated over solid angle measured by the PEACE instrument|
|Panel c:||One component of the raw electric field measured by the EFW instrument|
|Panel d:||Fluxes of the electrons moving parallel to the magnetic field, measured by the EDI instrument|
|Panel e:||Fluxes of the electrons moving anti-parallel to the magnetic field, measured by the EDI instrument|
