Cross scale energy transport in space plasmas: Application to the Magnetopause Boundary.
Contribution to Book
As space plasmas are highly collisionless and involve several temporal and spatial scales, understanding the physical mechanisms responsible for energy transport between these scales is a challenge. Ideally, to study cross-scale space plasma processes, simultaneous multispacecraft measurements in three different scales (fluid, ion and electron) would be required together with adequate instrumental temporal resolution. In this chapter we discuss cross-scale energy transport mechanisms mainly focusing on velocity shear driven Kelvin–Helmholtz instability and resulting secondary instabilities and processes, e.g. magnetic reconnection, kinetic magnetosonic waves, and kinetic Alfvén waves/mode conversion.
