J. Du, T. L. Zhang, R. Nakamura, C. Wang, W. Baumjohann, A. M. Du, M. Volwerk, K.-H. Glassmeier and J. P. McFadden Mode conversion between Alfvén and slow waves observed in the magnetotail by THEMIS Geophysical Research Letters 38

Version of Record online: 6 APR 2011 | DOI: 10.1029/2011GL046989

Key Points

  • Wave mode conversion is directly observed in the magnetotail for the first time
  • Change of background magnetic field direction can lead to wave mode conversion
  • Compressional waves result in the flucutuations in plasma
