Токовые структуры с магнитным широм в космической плазме

Зеленый Л., Григоренко Е. Е., Малова Х., В.Ю.Попов

The article presents observations of current configurations with a magnetic shear in the tail of a magnetic
the Earth’s sphere by the satellite quartet Cluster, and in the solar wind by the Wind satellite. Shown
that in current configurations with magnetic shear the following structural features are observed:
1) current layer thickening; 2) plasma density distribution, asymmetrical relative to the plane
sti layer; 3) the formation of an asymmetric current density profile. The kinetic features of the
of the dynamics of ions in current layers with an initial wide deformation, and a mechanism is proposed
of forming self-consistent current equilibria with a non-zero wide-angle magnetic component
fields.
