On a magnetosphere disturbed by solar wind; observations of macroelectrons
Abstract. Three-dimensional electromagnetic full kinetic particle code (a version of TRISTAN) is used to study the interaction of a weakly-magnetized object with a solar wind of low density. The details of two magnetospheric processes – wave activity and energetic electrons appearing at the flanks of the magnetosphere – are presented. The results of the simulation are compared with known magnetospheric data.
