The Numerical Simulation of VLF Chorus and Discrete Emissions Observed on the Geotail Satellite using a Vlasov Code

Record type: Article

The work consdiers VLF chorus elements observed omn the Geotail satellite, which passes the equator at 10 earth radii. We have used a VHS Vlasov simulation code to model these emissions, employing all the ambient plasma data observed on Geotail. Excellent agreement with observation results, with steep risers and slow fallers being reproduced. The results confirm the overall validity of the non linear trapping theory of VLF emissions, and also confirm the efficacity of the Vlasov VHS code.
