Title: Global observations of magnetospheric high- m poloidal waves during the 22 June 2015 magnetic storm
Abstract: We report global observations of high-m poloidal waves during the recovery phase of the 22 June 2015 magnetic storm from a constellation of widely spaced satellites of five missions including Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS), Van Allen Probes, Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorm (THEMIS), Cluster, and Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES). The combined observations demonstrate the global spatial extent of storm time poloidal waves. MMS observations confirm high azimuthal wave numbers (m ~ 100). Mode identification indicates the waves are associated with the second harmonic of field line resonances. The wave frequencies exhibit a decreasing trend as L increases, distinguishing them from the single-frequency global poloidal modes normally obs. . .

Title: Observations of magnetospheric high-m poloidal waves by ST-5 satellites in low Earth orbit during geomagnetically quiet times
Abstract: The poloidal waves with large azimuthal wavenumbers (m~100) in the magnetosphere are known to be generated by drift or drift bounce resonance with energetic ring current particles, and these waves may play a role in modulating the energetic particles in the inner magnetosphere. When examining the magnetic field data collected by the NASA ST-5 satellites in the low Earth orbit, Le et al. [2011] discovered many wave events with frequencies of 30–200 mHz (in the Pc 2–3 band), and they proposed that these waves should in fact be Doppler-shifted high-m poloidal waves in the magnetosphere with frequencies at only a few mHz (in the Pc 5 band). Using a new method that examines the differences in wave phase detected by the three ST-5 satellites, we confirm that the frequencies in the Earth fram. . .
