  • Transport of cross helicity and radial evolution of alfvenicity in the solar wind

    Matthaeus, William H.; Minnie, J.; Breech, Ben; Parhi, S.; Bieber, J.W.; Oughton, Sean (American Geophysical Union, 2004)
    A transport theory including cross helicity, magnetohydrodynamic(MHD) turbulence, and driving by shear and pickup ions, is applied to the radial evolution of the solar wind. The radial decrease of cross helicity observed ...
  • Transport of solar wind fluctuations: A two-component model

    Oughton, Sean; Matthaeus, William H.; Smith, Charles W.; Breech, Ben; Isenberg, P. A. (American Geophysical Union, 2011)
    We present a new model for the transport of solar wind fluctuations which treats them as two interacting incompressible components: quasi-two-dimensional turbulence and a wave-like piece. Quantities solved for include the ...
  • Turbulence transport throughout the heliosphere

    Breech, Ben; Matthaeus, William H.; Minnie, J.; Bieber, J.W.; Oughton, Sean; Smith, Charles W.; Isenberg, P.A. (American Geophysical Union., 2007)
    We employ a turbulence transport model to compute distributions of turbulence throughout the heliosphere. The model determines the radial dependence of three (coupled) quantities that characterize interplanetary turbulence, ...
  • A two-component transport model for solar wind fluctuations: Waves plus quasi-2D turbulence

    Oughton, Sean; Matthaeus, William H.; Smith, Charles W.; Breech, Ben (AIP, Melville, New York, 2010)
    We present a model for the transport of solar wind fluctuations, based on the assumption that they can be well-represented using two distinct components: a quasi-2D turbulence piece and a wave-like piece. For each component, ...
