AIP Conference ProceedingsTemperature anisotropy instabilities; combining plasma and magnetic field data at different distances from the Sun
We present a new data analysis method enabling the observation of magnetic field fluctuations associated with temperature anisotropy instabilities using the Ulysses spacecraft. The movement of the spacecraft away from the Sun causes the observed plasma conditions, turbulent fluctuation amplitude, magnetic field strength and important physical scales to change. We normalize wavelet power spectra of the magnetic field using local values for the proton gyroscale and large scale magnetic field fluctuation amplitude to remove ...
