For example, ADN probes may include QoS and other acceleration mechanisms in addition to visibility technologies.
These electron beams are more powerful than any produced in near-Earth space, and understanding their acceleration mechanisms will shed light on a physical process that may occur on other planets, or in astrophysical environments, as well as in the sun's corona," said Doug Rowland, principal investigator for the Firefly mission at NASA Goddard's Space Weather Laboratory.
After a brief historical review of early ring current studies, 32 papers on the physics and structures of the earth's inner magnetosphere are organized into sections that deal with the sources and losses of plasma and energetic particles in the inner magnetosphere, energetic particle acceleration mechanisms, external driving mechanisms of the inner magnetosphere, observational aspects of inner magnetosphere dynamics, and large-scale modeling efforts of the inner magnetosphere.
Identifying the source regions and acceleration mechanisms of the solar wind, a thin stream of ionized gas that constantly flows from the sun and buffets Earth's magnetosphere.
A combination of redundancy elimination, TCP acceleration and application acceleration mechanisms are dynamically applied under the control of sophisticated global, dynamic optimization features.
