  1. 1. Electron-scale physics in space plasma : Thin boundaries and magnetic reconnection

    Author : Cecilia Norgren; Mats André; Jonathan Eastwood; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Most of the observable Universe consists of plasma, a kind of ionized gas that interacts with electric and magnetic fields. Large volumes of space are filled with relatively uniform plasmas that convect with the magnetic field. READ MORE
