Artist Rendition of a Plasma Jet Impact Generating Standing Waves (image) Queen Mary University of London Share Print E-Mail Caption Artist rendition of a plasma jet impact (yellow) generating standing waves at the magnetopause boundary (blue) and in the magnetosphere (green). The outer group of four THEMIS probes witnessed the flapping of the magnetopause over each satellite in succession, confirming the expected behaviour/frequency of the theorised magnetopause eigenmode wave.
