en-US Initial results from the Helios-1 Search-coil Magnetometer experiment

Description (Dublin Core)

en-US The Helios search-coil magnetometer experiments provide a unique potential for studies of electromagnetic plasma wave modes in the solar wind between 0.3–1 A.U. because of excellent background noise levels, high time-resolution and high accuracy. Daily average spectral densities (γ √Hz) in the frequency range from 4.7–220 Hz show a pronounced increase as the sun is approached with complex superposed variations. Their values have a range of more than an order of magnitude. The shock of January 6, 1975 provides an interesting example for the use of high time-resolution spectral data. The fine structure and the long term variations in wave fields after the perpendicular shock are discussed. Also two interesting examples of "magnetic holes" are presented.
