The Radial Variation of the Solar Wind Turbulence Spectra near the Kinetic Break Scale from Parker Solar Probe Measurements
In this study we examine the radial dependence of the inertial and dissipation range indices, as well as the spectral break separating the inertial and dissipation range in power density spectra of interplanetary magnetic field fluctuations using Parker Solar Probe data from the fifth solar encounter between \raisebox-0.5ex\textasciitilde0.1 and \raisebox-0.5ex\textasciitilde0.7 au. The derived break wavenumber compares reasonably well with previous estimates at larger radial distances and is consistent with gyro-resonant da ...

The Modulation of Anomalous and Galactic Cosmic-Ray Oxygen over Successive Solar Cycle Minima
Both the recent 2009 and 2020 solar minima were classified as unusually quiet and characterized with unusually high galactic cosmic-ray (GCR) levels. However, unlike the trends from previous decades, in which anomalous cosmic-ray (ACR) and GCR levels strongly agreed, the ACR intensities did not reach such high, record- setting levels. This discrepancy between the behavior of GCRs and ACRs is investigated in this work by simulating the acceleration and transport of GCR and ACR oxygen under different transport conditions. Afte ...

Anomalous Cosmic-Ray Oxygen Observations into 0.1 au
The Integrated Science Investigation of the Sun instrument suite onboard NASA s Parker Solar Probe mission continues to measure solar energetic particles and cosmic rays closer to the Sun than ever before. Here, we present the first observations of cosmic rays into 0.1 au (21.5 solar radii), focusing specifically on oxygen from \raisebox-0.5ex\textasciitilde2018.7 to \raisebox-0.5ex\textasciitilde2021.2. Our energy spectra reveal an anomalous cosmic-ray-dominated profile that is comparable to that at 1 au, across multiple so ...

First Observations of Anomalous Cosmic Rays in to 36 Solar Radii
NASA s Parker Solar Probe mission continues to travel closer to the Sun than any prior human-made object, with an expected closest approach of <10 solar radii (<0.046 au) by 2024. On board, the Integrated Science Investigation of the Sun instrument suite makes unprecedented in situ measurements of energetic particles in the near-Sun environment. The current low level of solar activity offers a prime opportunity to measure cosmic rays closer to the Sun than ever before. We present the first observations of anomalous cosmic ra ...

On the Shape of SEP Electron Spectra: The Role of Interplanetary Transport
We address the effect of particle scattering on the energy spectra of solar energetic electron events using (I) an observational and (II) a modeling approach. (I) We statistically study observations of the STEREO spacecraft, using directional electron measurements made with the Solar Electron and Proton Telescope in the range of 45-425 keV. We compare the energy spectra of the anti-Sunward propagating beam with that of the backward-scattered population and find that, on average, the backward-scattered population shows a h ...
