  • Heating of the low-latitude solar wind by dissipation of turbulent magnetic fluctuations

    Smith, Charles W.; Matthaeus, William H.; Zank, Gary P.; Ness, Norman F.; Oughton, Sean; Richardson, John D. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2001-05)
    We test a theory presented previously to account for the turbulent transport of magnetic fluctuation energy in the solar wind and the related dissipation and heating of the ambient ion population. This theory accounts for ...
  • Heating the outer heliosphere by pickup protons

    Smith, Charles W.; Isenberg, Philip A.; Matthaeus, William H.; Richardson, John D.; Oughton, Sean; Zank, Gary P. (American Institute of Physics, 2004)
    There is a growing body of literature that demonstrates the ability of a turbulent cascade within the solar wind to heat the thermal protons. Several sources of energy are required to accomplish the observed heating. Wind ...
