Short summary
MESSENGER magnetic field data from the magnetosphere of Mercury have been investigated to identify ultra-low-frequency (ULF) waves. ULF waves in the Kelvin–Helmholtz (KH) wave frequency range are frequently observed in the magnetosphere. These ULF waves often have similar characteristics to previously identified, likely KH-driven ULF waves, indicating that ULF waves in a specific frequency band can be used as a detection tool for KH waves on Mercury.
