Second co-authorship of the year... and a submitted paper!

We are off to a good start. Last week, Jim Burch had a GRL paper accepted that I am co-author on. It is an MMS paper looking at localized oscillatory electric fields that may be related to energy dissipation at reconnection sites. Some really great results from MMS.

Also, I submitted a first author paper last week to JGR on a Cassini study I have been working on. In it, we use mission averaged observations of energetic (32 - 220 keV) ions in the magnetosphere of Saturn to look for spatial variations in the partial densities and relative abundances of species. Similar to some of the Polar papers I worked on, we are trying to get a handle on solar wind ion penetration into magnetospheres. Fun! Now just to wait for the peer reviews to come in...

I got a paper highlighted!

This is not exactly new news, but it is new news for my blog. Last year I published a paper on internal versus external sources of plasma at Saturn, with the catchy title of "Internal Versus External
