Role of turbulent transport in the evolution of the κ distribution functions in the plasma sheet

We studied the evolution of ion and electron distribution functions, approximated by κ distributions, in the plasma sheet with the distance from the Earth using the data of the THEMIS spacecraft mission. Five events were used to calculate the main parameters of the κ distribution. For these events at least four spacecraft were aligned along the tail between approximately 7 and 30 Earth radii. It was found that for the majority of events the values of κ increase tailwards. The observed radial profiles could be related to t ...
