Aim of the Workshop:

To gather all the recent studies of the plasmasphere with observations of CLUSTER and IMAGE, and the results of models, in order to write a review.
To publish this review in a peer-reviewed journal (5 or 6 review papers).

  2. Fields (electric and magnetic)
  3. Waves (electrostatic and electromagnetic)
  4. Plasma (density structures, electron and ion composition)
  5. Simulations, modelling
  6. Conclusions
