ABSTRACT

With reference to Jupiter’s south polar quasi-periodic 40–50 min (QP-40) activities and the model scenario for global QP-40 magneto-inertial oscillations of the Jovian inner radiation belt (IRB), we validate relevant predictions and confirmations by amassing empirical evidence from Ulysses, Cassini, Chandra, Galileo, XMM–Newton and the Advanced Composition Explorer for Jupiter’s north polar QP-40 activities. We report ground 6-cm radio observations of Jupiter by the Urumqi 25-m telescope for synchrotron intensity bursty variations of the Jovian IRB and show their likely correlations with the recurrent arrival of high-speed solar winds at Jupiter.
