Main Article Content
On 19 November 1976 a rather well developed giant pulsation event occurred at about 0600 MLT over northern Scandinavia. Results of observations obtained with a dense network of magnetometer stations are reported. The method of analysis is based on the concept of the analytical signal. The disturbance region was strongly localised. The amplitudes of the horizontal components show a pronounced difference: the amplitude maximum of the N-S component is clearly moving to the west while that of the E-W component is nearly fixed relative to the array. The frequency of the event decreased with time. Both the frequency decrease and the drift of the amplitude maximum are interpreted in terms of bounce - resonance instability. The spatial polarisation pattern found is in agreement with the fieldline-resonance theory in that the sense of rotation of the horizontal disturbance vector is as predicted by the theory. At the region of maximum amplitudes the pulsation is linearly polarised in E-W direction, as observed by other workers. This does not agree with the fieldline-resonance model. Apparent azimuthal wave numbers of the horizontal components show that the event analysed is a westward-travelling wave. The wave numbers are as large as predicted by Olson and Rostoker's (1978) empirically derived relation between the E-W wave number and the frequency of pc 4-5 pulsations.

This journal is one of a handful of scholarly journals that publish original scientific works under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 - the only Creative Commons license affording the authors' intellectual property absolute worldwide protection.
Journal of Geophysics is published under the scholar-publishers model, meaning authors do not surrender their copyright to us. Instead, and unlike corporate publishers like Elsevier or Springer Nature that resell copyright to third-parties for up to $80,000 (per paper, per transaction!), the Journal of Geophysics authors share copyright equally with this journal.
Therefore, all the proceeds from reselling copyright to third parties get shared to equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author). Under the Berne Convention, this protection is an inheritable right that lasts for as long as the rightsholder lives + 50 years.
By submitting to this journal, the lead author, on behalf of all co-authors, grants permission to this journal to represent all co-authors in negotiating copyright sales and collecting proceeds. The lead author should negotiate with his/her co-authors the modalities of distributing the lead author's portion of the proceeds. Usually, this is per pre-agreed percentage of each co-author's contribution to creating the copyrighted work. (more...)
